... 10 of the 17 districts of Siena. The riders and horses are selected randomly. The Palio and Siena can be seen in the James Bond Movie, Quantum of Solace. I have included a postcard with a picture of the Palio. The Piazza was built around 1300, It is impressive to stand in this great plaza and understand that it has been standing for over 700 years.

... of time to get there.

We stopped off at a shop (very briefly) that had photographs of the horse race. Down a street where you could see the pipes of the toilets at each level of these really old buildings, past a blacksmith shop here the tour ended.

We had a bite to eat and headed down a path towards the back gate of the city where prisoners where hung for their crimes and into some farm land at the back of the University. Here they were growing all sorts ...
