What you'll do

If you are visiting Siena, you will be fascinated by the Palio and its bizarre tradition. Together we will discover one of the 17 Contradas to reach its pulsating soul, we will reveal many myths and we will have fun discovering Sienese ways of saying and doing. After a quick visit of the historic center and above all of Piazza del Campo, the place where the race takes place every 2nd July and 16th August, we will move towards Casa Selva. We will visit the district with its squares and alleys; its Museum, the custodian of the Contrada memories from the won banners to the prestigious dresses. We will also discover the other face of the Palio: religion, letting ourselves be enchanted by the decorations of the Oratory and the nice Fountain with the Rhinoceros.
