Tuscany is not only the cradle of the Italian Renaissance: there are countless places to visit and discover.

Culture, art and traditions combined with a landscape of rolling hills, vineyards and charming villages, make Tuscany not only the most dreamed of Italian destination, but an unforgettable experience that will leave you wanting to discover more and more about this fabulous region.

The Palio is the most important event organized in the city of Siena and takes place every year on July 2nd and August 16th. In the Palio the different Siena districts, or the “zones” in which the city is divided, challenge each other in a passionate horse race in Piazza del Campo.

Siena is currently divided into 17 Contrade: Aquila, Bruco, Chiocciola, Civetta, Drago, Giraffa, Istrice, Leocorno, Lupa, Nicchio, Oca, Onda, Pantera, Selva, Tartuca, Torre, Valdimontone.
Each Contrada is characterized by a unique coat of arms and colors and occupies a specific area of ??the city. Walking through the streets of Siena you can easily understand which Contrada you are in, observing the flags and coats of arms displayed along the roads.

The Palio race has very remote origins, in fact there are news of palios with horses in Siena at least since the seventeenth century.

Authenticity, hospitality and ancient flavors will be the winning cards to make the most important day of your life unique and unforgettable.

An ideal destination for those who want to crown the dream of a love story in places rich in history, culture and mysterious charm among strongholds, ancient palaces and museums, in the postcard landscapes in the Tuscan hills.
