Our Days of the Palio Tour was created to provide clients the opportunity to combine the Chianti wine region with a more inclusive Palio package so as to fully experience the region and this historic event. In addition to a winery tour and lunch, the 5-night package provides the opportunity to witness the all important horse (lottery) assignments and the initial trial race. Also included, our city tour to provide the highlights of Siena, but also more history on the Palio with a visit to one of the Contrada museums. As with all our Palio packages, we provide the up close and personal experience with your attendance to one of the invitation-only Contrada dinners (the night before the final race day). Then what you came for, on race day your reserved Palio ticket gives you access to watch the historical parade and the race in Piazza del Campo.

" ...Our experience with your company met and exceeded our expectations. Having traveled a fair bit, I know how hard it is to organize events without having numerous unforeseen issues arrive. The Palio experience was all we could have wished for. Thanks for everything. We will certainly use your service on our next trip to Italy which will not be soon enough ... "

" We thoroughly enjoyed the Palio experience. The accommodation was great, wine tour excellent, city tour good, viewing the trial race from your apartment balcony was excellent and the grandstand seats at the start /finish line was fantastic ... I would certainly recommend your company to my prospective clients and hopefully I can go again one day ... "
