The Palio of Siena - Full-Day Tour
  • The Palio of Siena - Full-Day Tour

    Held twice annually in July and August, the Palio is far more than just a horse race and the festival surrounding each race day lasts for four days. The race is contested between the various “contrade” or neighbourhoods of the city and the rivalry is extraordinarily fierce. On this tour, you will receive a guided tour of the center of Siena, watch the racehorses' pre-race procession and experience the race's thrills and spills. The experience is sure to stay with you for a lifetime!

    Depart from Florence and meet your expert local guide in the heart of Siena as the Palio frenzy is tangible and the city becomes a living and breathing entity. You will be led on a fascinating tour of the historic city centre and your guide will explain the complicated rivalry between each contrada of the city. Each neighborhood has its own emblem and colours so to experience the race like a true local you should pick your favourite design and cheer them on to the end of the race.

    The atmosphere will reach fever pitch as the start time draws closer and you will be in prime position by the Piazza del Campo to watch the Passeggiata Storica as the horses and their jockeys parade before the crowd. Take in the incredible spectacle of the race as the horses power through the narrow track in the historic square and round off a magical day with a delicious dinner in a restaurant in the square itself.
