"Sienna had always been divided..." Siena Local Custom Tip by sandravdp

Siena Local Customs: 42 reviews and 97 photos

 
 

Sienna had always been divided in different city parts. Each part had it's own flag. Now still it's usual to celebrate the different flag areas every year. We were lucky enough to see this celebration (flagwaving, music and dancing in the streets). Before the flagcelebration is done there usually is a horse race on Piazza del Campo. The horse of the winning flagarea is honoured on Piazza del Campo after the race. Unfortunately we missed the race.
