... people of Siena it is a very serious moment. Yet, many tourists do come to watch the race. We were told some recommendations to offer those from outside of Siena who do come to witness the Palio. First, be careful about approaching contradaioli in the time before the Palio, as this is a very sensitive moment and the people might actually act a bit aggressively.
