Siena Palio Tickets

Horse races were very common in every major medieval Tuscan city, and such a race is still celebrated today in Siena. The name ‘palio’ comes from the painted silk cloth, pallium, awarded to the winner. The Palio is a thrilling race between ten horses (barberi), whose jockeys ride bareback, and each represent a specific Contrada (historic neighbourhood) of Siena. The race takes place in Campo Square twice a year: once on July 2nd in honour of Our Lady of Provenzano and once on August 16th in honour of Our Lady of Assumption.

PALIO IN STYLE – This is a unique Palio di Siena package experience we guarantee to private small groups only. Any small private groups can see this medieval race and get involved in an extraordinary, real festival atmosphere. A brief tour of the city with a Local Palio Angel will give you the occasion for a dive in the past. During the Palio days the whole city goes crazy, and it shows its colorful side, rich in tension and passion. We think that the Palio experience will be unforgettable. After a visit at a Contrada’s Museum, we won’t miss the vision of the last race test in the Piazza del Campo. The last appointment we have the eve before the race is with the people of the Contrada for the official dinner. You will be part of the banquet in the Contrada Street together with the contradaioli and participate in the festivities. TuscanTeam’s Palio in Style package is available upon request and for small private groups only. Grandstand Palio Tickets and access to Palio Private Balcony to watch the race are not included into our package but anyone can book separately one of the Palio Tickets listed below.

GRANDSTAND PALIO TICKETS – here at TuscanTeam we have experienced the Palio horse race several times and surely a sit on the grandstand guarantees a very exciting point of view. Grandstand are erected directed on the track, so close to the racetrack that you will feel the movement of air created by the galloping horses while the excitement and cheering will overwhelm you. You will see the horses dart 3 times and you will hold your breath until the end of the race and the beginning of the party of the winning Contrada. The Grandstand Ticket include the view of the Historical Parade (Corteo Storico), which takes place in the Piazza del Campo before the horse race. Each Grandstand Palio Ticket is numbered, and it guarantees 1 seat. The square is quite irregular, looks like a seashell, and the whole square is divided in 54 different grandstands (each viewing spot is different from one other)

PRIVATE BALCONY PALIO TICKETS – the Balcony is a private property and offers a higher Palio di Siena viewpoint: you should consider a spot on a Private Balcony if you prefer a different service. Some private balconies have direct access from the Campo Square instead others have access from back streets and are part of private apartments overlooking the Campo Square. Each viewing spot is different from one other and the most requested are the balconies with direct view of the starting and arrival line. As for the viewpoint, even the service included into the access of private balconies can’t be the same. The access to a Private Balcony includes the view of the Historical Parade (Corteo Storico), which takes place in the Piazza del Campo before the horse race. Here at TuscanTeam we have experienced the Palio horse race several times and we know a spot on a Private Balcony overlooking the starting line guarantees a very exciting point of view.
