What to expect

The Palio is a famous horse race held twice a year (on 2nd July and 16th August) in Piazza del Campo. You will live all the drama and excitement of the four days of the Palio. On the eve of the Palio, the trial is followed by a festive dinner.

The next day, the most exciting events start in the afternoon when the horses are blessed. After a magnificent parade in Renaissance costumes, three frenzied laps of the Piazza will decide the winner. The citizens of the winning Contrada then praise the horse and the jockey as heroes and will proudly celebrate all year long.

With this day trip from Florence, you will benefit from a package that captures the true essence of the Palio, a tailor-made experience that will let you take home “the heart of Siena”. After a guided tour of Siena, you will watch the Palio horse race from the Piazza del Campo. Then, at the end of the day, you will enjoy dinner at a Piazza del Campo restaurant.
