An historic horse race that takes place twice a year in the city of Siena, the Palio Di Siena event is deeply rooted in Sienese history and culture and is considered one of the most famous and prestigious horse races in the world.
The Palio dates back to the medieval period, with the first recorded race taking place in 1656.
The Palio is not just a horse race; it's a cultural event that reflects the deep sense of pride and identity that the people of Siena have for their contrade. The rivalry between contrade is intense, and winning the Palio is a source of great honour and celebration.
