Tuscany # Palio di Siena

The Palio is a horse race that is held twice a year on the main square of Siena, il piazza del Campo. Ten horses and riders, bareback and dressed in the appropriate colours, represent ten of the seventeen city wards. The riders are allowed to use their whips for disturbing other horses and riders - oups. The winner is the first horse to cross the finish line after running three laps, with or without rider - oups again. We have been fortunate to attend two trial races of the Palio di Siena. It was fantastic to take part in this event in the middle of people from Siena, noise, songs and colors ! But no enough to wait 5 hours yesterday to attend the real race ... 

Wrong way.

Ok ... we'll manage ...
