Palio di SienaHeld twice each summer, “Il Palio” is a 90-second bareback hores race around the enormous Piazza del Campo – a competition that has occurred every year (save for one during World War II) since the first stallions lined up in 1656. Prior to that, participants rode buffalo’s. Seriously.

Once the race is over the party starts, and that definitely last for longer than 90 seconds.

The second race of the year is held every year on the 16th August.
