Package Details

One of Italy’s most anticipated sporting events, the Palio di Siena is a 90-second, bareback horse race in which Siena’s various districts, or contrade, compete neck and neck. The first race took place in 1310, and it continues to gallop around the city’s Piazza del Campo every summer. The competition is fierce and stakes are high, as the loser is considered to be the contrada whose horse comes second rather than last.

This summer, Hotel Savoy invites guests to an exclusive experience of the world’s most colourful horse race. With the races set on 2nd July and 16th August, guests are invited to cheer the action from private seats, with a prime view of the Palio’s starting line. Before the race begins, soak up Siena’s anticipatory atmosphere on a three-hour tour of the historic city. Then witness history in action and toast the winning contrada, before returning to Hotel Savoy to receive a chic Palio di Siena scarf as a memento.
