The Palio of Siena splits…

Race of SienaThe Palio of Siena is the life of the Sienese people over time and in different aspects and feelings.

It has ancient origins with some regulations still valid since 1644, the year in which the course was the first prize with horses, as well as still happens in unbroken continuity.

The territory of the city is divided into seventeen Contradas with the boundaries established in 1729 by the Proclamation of Violante of Bavaria, Governor of the City.

The first one will be on July 2, the second most well-known August 16…

We look forward to seeing it again and again…and you?
