Palio of Siena

2nd July and 16th August

In July and August one of the highlights of the Tuscan events is held: the Palio.

It’s more than a simple horse race, it’s a very ancient tradition that inflames the souls of the citizens lined up in the different districts. The Palio ofSiena is run twice a year in the iconic Piazza del Campo, which, with its shell shape, is ideal for an exciting race to win.
The Palio is one of the best-known folkloristic events in the world and attracts every year fans, tourists and simple curious who enjoy the contrada dinners, the historical parades and, obviously, the horse race from an exclusive position.

Treno Natura

From March to December

The spring in Tuscany begins with a jump back in time: the journeys on the historic trainways of the Treno Natura start in this period. The train reaches the fair Mostra Mercato del Tartufo Marzuolo in San Giovanni d'Asso, but this is only the first of the events on schedule.

The picturesque train takes you in past times and idyllic landscapes: you travel on "centoporte" (“one hundred doors”) carriages driven by steam locomotives, rattling in the green Tuscan hills. In some areas you can only see fields and flocks: the atmosphere is truly unique. The Treno Natura, leaving from Siena, stops in some romantic stations during the most beautiful festivals and folk events in Tuscany.
