Siena, beyond the Palio

Siena is famous all over the world for its Palio, which takes place twice a year. But this enchanting city offers visitors so much more: the medieval heart of the city is rich in piazzas and Gothic buildings, constructed during the city’s golden age. The Art of Leisure will take you on a tour of the city’s artistic gems: the cathedral, the Piazza del Campo … Not forgetting the Palio, we will accompany you on a visit to one of the contrada museums, normally only open to residents of the contrada (quarter), where the standards and victory banners are jealously kept.
