Experience Il Palio di Siena

The Il Palio horse race is an event that occurs twice each summer in Siena, Italy. Rachel and I made our way into the mayhem of the center ring in Piazza del Campo for the main event.

The Sienese exude pride and competitive spirits all year-round, but it all comes to a climax on August 16 – the last of the year’s races and the opportunity for the winning Contrada (district within the town) to secure bragging rights for the next 365 days.
