Postcards from Tuscany
Siena Panorama
The Siena Palio is the most spectacular festival event in Italy, a bareback horse race contested every year on July 2 and August 16. Three laps around a makeshift track in Piazza del Campo by representatives from the city's seventeen neighborhoods earn or scorn the respect of the town. Festivities kick off three days prior to the main event, with trial races, banquets and late-night celebrations.
