Summer is coming, Siena’s Palio too!
Once again, Siena is ready for welcoming thousands visitors coming from every corner of the world who come to Italy for marveling at such a great yearly event taking place in Piazza del Campo, the famous shell-shaped square in the wonderful Tuscan town.
The first appointment of the Palio, the famous, yearly horse race, is scheduled On Tuesday 2nd July, and will see the 10 contradas (districts) of the city in a hard challenge. But how old is the tradition of the Palio? Just think that the borders of each contrada date back to 1729!
