Siena is the capital of Tuscany’s historic traditions.

The Palio di Siena, a race held twice a year in the stunning setting of Piazza del Campo, is an event that is eagerly awaited by all Siena, divided into contradas (districts), all of which take part in the horse race with great enthusiasm. Tourists flock to the square and the terraces, anything to get a place in the front row: the Palio is something to see at least once in a lifetime.
