SIENA, THE PALIO - ADVANCE BOOKING AND ONLINE TICKET RESERVATION

Recent comment:

Vatican and St Peters private tour, Monday 17th March 2014

I would like to give you feedback on the above which our party of 8 enjoyed immensely.

Everything was perfect, meeting, entry (lovely to pass those queues), technology, venue (of course), etc.

But the best thing about the whole morning was your guide Deborah. She is charming, friendly, erudite, and a real credit to you. We listened to her intently throughout, she held our attention, surprised us, interacted with us, answered all our questions, and made the morning very special. We would have missed so much without her. We all think we would like to meet her again and when we come back to Rome we would hope to do so.

Many thanks

How to book tickets for taking part in the Siena Palio

The Siena Palio takes place twice a year, on July the second and August the sixteenth. This centuries-old tradition is notoriously hard to take part in, and tickets are always in short supply. We're able to offer a wide range of packages, most of which are exclusive to us for the time being.
