Does you know the famous Palio?

To describe Siena, it is necessary to start from its main square, Piazza del Campo, with its typical shell shape, the same where the well-known Palio takes place, full of restaurants and cafés, where tourists and habitants stop to admire the surrounding monuments and the imposing Tower of Mangia. The Palio is an event so closely linked to city life that it is difficult to grasp its importance for those who were not born in Siena. This competition between the districts of the city consists of running three times around the Piazza Del Campo, riding the horse bareback (without saddle) and takes place twice per year, on the 2nd of July and 16th of August.
