TOUR 09 – SIENA, contrada
To learn about Siena, you need to plunge into the atmosphere of the districts (“contrade”) contending for the city supremacy during the Palio of July 2 and August 16. Your guide will then propose a tour to discover one of these “city in the city”, showing you the baptismal font of each Contrada, the church for the blessing of the horse (it sounds strange, does not it? Not in Siena…), the museum that houses the memories, the square where they organize dinners and all the remote corners that have a special meaning in relation to the preparation of the race. In fact, in Siena, the Palio lasts all year round and the two races are only the epilogue of enthralling adventure that includes negotiations, deception, alliances, betrayals and high hopes. Moreover, in the days immediately preceding the Palio, you can arrange special tours, to be agreed with your guide.
