About the Palio di Siena
This is a bi-annual race which takes place in the charming Piazza Del Campo; the centre square of Siena. The Palio is steeped with history and dates back to medieval times. A thrilling spectacle as jockeys race round the square bareback, using force to push past any opponent who stands in the way.
Packages include an insight into the culture and traditions of this Tuscan town and the race which brings each of the small contrades (city subdivisions) to battle for the ultimate title. Experience a banquet of Tuscan delicacies and listen to stories and tales of times gone by.
Enjoy the luxuries of the Castel Monastero hotel hidden amongst the rolling hills and vineyards of the Tuscan countryside. Relax and enjoy the spa, pool, restaurants, and elegant rooms at this stunning location and prepare for the energetic jamboree that is the Palio di Siena.
