Palio General Trial Dinner (day before Palio)

On July 1st and August 15th the members of Sienese contradas gather up for big open-air dinners with captains and jokeys that the next day will run the Palio. This is the only time when the Contrade open their doors and let the guests stay with them.

The experience

The Prova Generale dinner takes place on July 1 and August 15, right after the most important of the trial races in the square. Those nights the communities of Siena, the Contrade, gather up and hug the captain of the district and the jockey that will run in the square the next day. The Contrade have a big dinner in the open air, in the different areas of the town that belong to them. It is a ritual where you listen to the chants of the Contradaioli (members of Contradas), to the speech delivered by the Captain and the Jockey and where you can drink a lot of good, Tuscan red wine. But most important: this is the only time when the Contrade open their doors and let the guests stay with them. Do you want to join in and let the Contradaioli adopt you? Ask us and we will make you live an unforgettable experience!
