The city of Palio


Siena, located in the heart of Tuscany and surrounded by hills, is one of the most beautiful medieval cities of Italy.

The heart of the city is the famous Piazza del Campo, with its particular shell shape, in which the famous Palio is held, one of the most important events for all the Sienese people.

Thanks to its excellent geographical position, with the Chianti hills to the north and the Crete Senesi and Valdorica areas to the south, the city is probably one of the best in Tuscany for the production of wines. The wide selection includes some of the finest in the world: Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, but also Chianti Classico, Chianti dei Colli Senesi and Chianti Superiore.
