...being there, but without the crowds
The lucky three contrade to run for Palio of August 2017 are Lupa, Aquila and Bruco.
We saw already Aquila and Bruco on July, with Aquila nearly winning the Palio. Lupa is still enjoying last year victory but her enemy Istrice will be there to spice things up.
The other seven contrade are Chiocciola, Selva, Oca, Valdimontone, Torre, Istrice, Onda. More detailed information here (in Italian).
We still have available ticket for August Palio race, please contact for more details!
Torre and Selva are proud to get the Palio for 2015 season
The Palio documentary movie introduces you to the complexity of the race... Which is not really (only) a horse race!
