Palio is the great shared passion of Siena. Colourful bareback riders race through Piazza del Campo in the beautiful medieval city on July 2 and August 16 each year. On the big day, watching this famous event from your luxury hotel’s own VIP box in a private palace, you will pick up the infectious Italian exuberance, as the different areas of the city support their horses, wave flags and wear historical dress.
Tuscany Aug: 16-29 deg C, av. 9h sunshine/day.
