Siena on the day of Il Palio

Siena on the day of Il Palio

San Gimignano is just 40 minutes from Siena where one can observe Il Palio one of the most suggestive and age-old spectacles in Italy.

The parade with walk-on performers dressed in medieval costume, the dinners in the contrade, the flag-wavers, the music, and the horse race in the Piazza del Campo—all has a unique and emotional quality to boast about during this special day in Siena on the day of Il Palio.

The race has been performed two times a year since 1644, and today it is still the most important event of the Sienese year.
