Your Hospitality Experience

Imagine that all Chelsea and Arsenal fans (or Yankees and Red Sox fans) had been baptised in the church of their team and lived as near neighbours their whole lives

The Palio is a year-long strategic battle culminating in two annual events. Each and every Sienese is involved in the Palio in some way; the result of what may seem like ‘just a horse race’ is in fact glory or despair for those who live here. It has been this way since medieval times.

It’s not uncommon for many of the horses to lose their jockeys during the race – a horse without a rider can still win! The Palio di Siena horse race itself may be over in 90 seconds but the impact makes history.

We offer a unique, tailor-made experience for Palio di Siena at Piazza del Campo to our discerning clients.

Our hospitality team is available 24/7 to provide an exceptional level of service for this event, as well as catering for the finest options in Siena entertainment, accommodation, close protection and transportation needs.
