The Palio of Siena to be run on July 2! Stay tuned!
Just like every year, the first of the two horse races known as the Palio of Siena will be run on July 2 on the Piazza del Campo in the historic center of city.
The Palio is so much more than just a “horse race.” As each one of Siena’s “wards” competes to win the tournament, communal dinners and parades are held throughout the Medieval boroughs in the weeks that lead up to the main event.
Here at Siena Ristorante Toscana, not only do we love Tuscan cuisine but we also love Tuscany, its culture, and its history.
And so we follow the Palio very closely.
In coming weeks, we’ll be posting about the history of the race and what it means for the people of Siena.
