Your special insider access begins with a guided orientation of Siena and a visit to one of the city’s best “Contrada” museums, with thousands of memorabilia from past Palio races. Your guide will take you on a secret underground walk along hidden passageways rarely opened to the public to the Piazza del Campo, the famous square where the Palio is held twice a year. At one of the important and historical palaces facing the square, a private team prepares a traditional Tuscan lunch for you. Then visit one of the Palio’s most famous jockeys, who has won many races, on a wonderful estate with other jockeys and beautiful horses. Meet your fantino and his team and animals and watch as they re-enact a private version of the Palio!

The Palio has ancient origins, with regulations still in place since 1644. Learn from an insider more about the Palio and how and why the Palio is so important to the locals.
