We know that the Palio was so much better when it can be easily seen rather than in the square. While expensive, the chance to see the parade and race well made it worthwhile for us. Recommended!

This was a wonderful experience. The Palio was thrilling and everything from tickets, seat and meals were first class. My guide, Stella was outstanding . 5 star package all the way
