Om
To ganger i året, i juli og august, forvandles den brede Piazza del Campo i sentrum av Siena til en veddeløpsbane. 17 ulike "stridende" nabolag er representert gjennom utsmykkede silkeflagg, og konkurrerer om å vinne den ettertraktede Drappellone-premien. Det arrangeres også kostymeparader som går før veddeløpet.

Wir waren im letzten Sommer da und es war - wie zu erwarten - sehr heiss. Die ganze Woche vorher wird geschmückt und gefeiert. Um am Palio selbst teilzunehmen benötigt man eine sehr teure Trebünenkarte oder man muss sich auf dem Innenplatz in der prallen Sonne rechtzeitig einen Platz “erkämpfen”. Für uns war das nichts. Dennoch: Die Stadt und die Feierlichkeiten sind allemal eine Reise wert.

Alessandro and the folks at Tuscan Team arranged a perfect Palio experience for us. I must admit that I was a little scared about arranging and paying for the whole thing on a website from California, 6,000 miles and 9 time zones away. In the end I was happy that I took the plunge. In addition to obtaining amazing seats to view the Palio he arranged a city tour, a Contrada dinner, and reservations for dinner after the Palio. Just a word of note, if you are claustrophobic, like me, the balcony has a great view but is a bit cramped.

In the interest of full disclosure, our experience was only possible because we know several people in one of the contradas. Thus, we had the whole experience from the trial to the dinner to the blessing of the horse to the race. It was a lot to take in and seeing it through the eyes of our local colleagues gave just a small picture into the cultural experience. Standing in the slopped campo for several hours was a challenge (trapped among sooo many people with no bathroom) and it is really, really crowded. Fortunately, the experience of others paid off as we were in the shade. One tip--bottles with lids are not allowed so bring water but not a lid. Overall, the experience was a lot..I am glad I did it but not sure I would do it again. The contrada dinner was definitely the highlight for me.

I purchased 2 balcony tickets for the August 2023 Palio and could not be more happy. The tickets were just as described. I also bought tickets to a contrada dinner and, to my surprise, Jacopo was seated at our table. I got Jacopo’s name from friends in Siena that knew him personally so I never doubted my transaction would have problems. Had I not had this connection I can understand how some people would be leery of making such a large purchase from a website that they had no prior knowledge of. Now that the Palio is over I can honestly say Jacopo seemed like a warm, friendly person that genuinely cares about his customers and the Palio. You are in good hands with Jacopo. I highly recommend him.

I’ve been to remarkable Siena and Italy 3 times. Fascinating history, geography, food, drink, people ( for the most part)
As a group of 8, we wanted to attend the 400 + year tradition of the Palio horse race with the awesome accompanying pageantry. We did so tonight. Fantastic pageantry but an experience that left a lot to be desired. It’s a 3- lap race on a track with numerous right angle turns. Can you imagine 10 horses running full speed and coming to 2 right angle corners and have to negotiate those turns? It’s a recipe for disaster. These are finely - tuned animals. It’s akin to running Buffalo off an unsuspecting cliff to their serious injury. The horses experience the track in preliminary trials but with 50,000 people and jockeys urging them on, there is no way a horse or 2 or 3 will not be seriously injured in those 90* plus turns at 40 mph!!! And that is what occurred tonight. It is one thing that jockeys consciously ride bareback, where many horses finish jockeyless. They make that decision while subjecting their horses to an unknown fate. The horses crash into a lightly padded wall at 40 mph and hope for the best outcome. Remember- 3 laps through 2 right angle turns each lap. 10 horses tonight and broken legs on 2 or 3 horses. Hoofs just dangling and those horses are so “ juiced up” and running on pure adrenaline that they exert themselves to finish the race with broken legs!! Of course they were sacrificed after the race. AWEFUL and I’m not an animal rights guru, but have at least a modicum of thought toward a fellow mammal.
It’s like playing American football without a helmet and expecting no serious injuries after 4 quarters. Impossible. At least we don’t shoot to death the “ACL’s and the separated shoulders and concussed athletes.
This 400- years of The Palio will no doubt go
on for hundreds more. It’s in the DNA of the contrada citizens.
Google The Palio and observe the “ start” of the race. What a joke that is. As a doctor I will
tell you that the horses are totally, physiologically exhausted by the time the gun sends them to their fate. None has the physical ability to adroitly negotiate the 90* turns, especially at 40mph. Can you say inertia, momentum, centrifugal force?!
I may return to Siena but I urge you to think twice about attending The Palio.

First of all, let me say it's definitely worth it to visit the Palio. Siena is worth visiting any time of the year, but the Palio is something else. Even though it is during tourist season it still is (and feels) a very local event. The people and athmosphere are amazing!

But this review is to help people considering booking with Jacopo Della Torre (as I was, last winter). I did read some other negative reviews, but his response was very well written, so I decided to trust him. I think if everything goes perfect, you'll be fine, but be sure that you have no rights if something goes wrong. Especially for the trial runs, his terms state: "in the rare event of cancellation of the one you have bought tickets for, tickets remain valid for the next one, possibly at 9am the following morning". Please note that this simply not true (as you can read below).

Prior to the Palio there is great and friendly email contact. You have to pay to a bank in Lithuania based in Hungary, which I though was a bit strange, but in the end the tickets were waiting for us at the hotel, just as promised. You are given a local phone number of his assistant, who you can contact during the Palio.

In reality the assistant doesn't always respond and you are not kept up to date. This is relevant, because sometimes (as in our case) the trail runs (and/or Palio itself) will be postponed because of the weather. We didn't hear anything so went at 9.00 in the morning to the square, to see that the trail run was cancelled. After that we met him briefly and he asked us to send him an email about a possible trial run later that night.

He will probably reply to this post explaining himself, but I disagree. You can judge for yourself based on his own words:

Jacopo: "Sorry, no chance for tonight. If the race is on, it's sold out. Tomorrow morning could be an option. Thanks for now and we talk later in case".

We heard nothing. After filing a complaint with him, he said he couldn't remember meeting us in person (this was 3 days after we met him). He will probably write a well written answer to this post justifying his actions, so I will leave to everyone to judge it based on his own words:

"Had you been more proactive, you would have been rescheduled as anyone else who indeed bothered contacting us also later on the day. After all, with all respect, I don't think that your day was as busy as mine, and nobody ever prevented you from contacting me or my team again during the day"

Da 44 anni vado immancabilmente al Palio (con la P maiuscola, mi raccomando) ed è sempre una emozione: se posso però dare un consiglio, fatelo anche voi alla "senese". Intendo dire che è molto defatigante andare in piazza la mattina presto come fanno alcuni turisti, perdendosi poi cose molto più interessanti come ad esempio la benedizione del cavallo. Quindi la mattina andate a vedere il drappellone esposto (a luglio in Provenzano e ad agosto in Duomo), fate un giro in piazza del Campo tanto per avere una idea..

...poi andate a mangiare (si mangia bene ovunque). .. affrettatevi per andare a vedere la benedizione del cavallo in una contrada che corre .. (se corre la Pantera andate nella sua chiesa: è la più capiente ed accolgono tutti, niente foto però ed un silenzio assoluto).

All'uscita del cavallo tutti i contradaioli vanno in piazza del Duomo, seguiteli! Ci sarà l'omaggio al vescovo, il saluto con le altre contrade, l'omaggio alle alleate, l'astio alla nemica etc. Poi tutti entreranno al palazzo della Prefettura (proprio di fianco al Duomo) dove partirà il corteo storico.

Dai gradini del Duomo guardatevi il Corteo storico (è semplicemente unico, nulla è paragonabile per imponenza, numero, portamento e sentimento... Ed è solo una parte (i cavalli e i fantini ci saranno solo un piazza).

Una volta sfilato il corteo, seguitelo ma prima fematevi in un bar a fare pipí ..
... entrerete in piazza del Campo da via Duprè a metà circa del Corteo.
Scegliete voi il posto, si vede bene quasi ovunque. .. io che sono interessato alle fasi della mossa preferisco stare poco sotto la fontana di Fonte Gaia verso il centro della piazza.

A chi si chiedesse come mai non partano è importante sapere che la partenza non dipende dal mossiere ma dalla contrada di rincorsa: quando entra al canape il Palio ha inizio . ..
Ma entra solo quando ci sono le "sue condizioni" compresa la sfavorevole posizione della avversaria.

Il Palio e bello anche per questo, soprattutto per questo.

Se poi avreste l'idea di recarvi là un giorno prima, andate senza dubbi in una delle cene "della prova generale" organizzate dalle contrade che corrono: sarete a contatto con i contradaioli, col Priore, col Capitano, col Fantini e...
... l'ospite d'onore: il cavallo

Siamo andati molte volte al Palio di Siena. E' un'esperienza che consiglierei a tutti. Ma per andare consiglio di abbandonare tutti i luoghi comuni che si sentono in giro su questa festa. Il Palio è una festa soprattutto dei senesi. Va vissuta con gioia. Noi in genere scegliamo una Contrada che corre (ne corrono 10 su 17) e viviamo coi contradaioli i quattro giorni principali della festa, partecipando alla Tratta, alle prove, alla cena della vigilia, alla benedizione del cavallo e ovviamente alla corsa. Vorrei aggiungere che in nessun altro posto ho trovato un simile amore per i cavalli, che dice che vengono maltrattai racconta solo frottole. Provare per credere.
