Siena and the Palio package

Experience Siena at its Best with our Palio Horse Race Package

Siena may be famous for its beautiful architecture and historic, magnificent cathedral, but for a day in the months of July and August, the city takes on a completely different personality with the famous Palio horse race.

Although the race takes just a minute or two, Siena comes alive for many more days surrounding the event, with music, parades and street parties cropping up all over the city, ensuring that there is plenty to do and see on your package holiday to Siena.

Our Siena and the Palio package deal includes flights, accommodation, transfers and balcony tickets to watch the Palio in comfort from a priviledged position, where you will be sure to not miss a single second of the action.

About the Palio Horse Race

Il Palio is an exhilarating 90-second bareback race around Piazza del Campo, which is the main square. This traditional competition, which takes place annually, sees a horse from ten of the districts of Siena compete with their riders for victory and the respect that winning this grand race ensures.

The name "palio" comes from the hand-painted silk banner that is awarded to the race winner and it is thought to be bring luck to the district that wins.
