Il Palio, Siena
Sienna Palio is a very famous bare-back horse race round the sand-covered Piazza del Campo that takes place every 2 July and 16 August. The contrade (town neighbourhoods) compete for the palio ( banner) dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The square is filled with costumed pageantry before the race and afterwards massive feasts are set up on long outdoor tables that can stretch for blocks on the side streets. Tickets for favoured locations provided with seating are expensive but a good view of the race can also be obtained from the middle of the piazza where a large crowd stands.
NOT TO BE MISSED!
