There are of course many Palio's all over Italy.
Perhaps Sienna being the best known. But for me the one held in Asti, on the third Sunday of every September is the best. There are three heats, with the first three horses from each heat going into the Grand Final. Our first try at the Palio was some 10-years ago, where torrential rain forced away in the middle of the 3rd heat. These pictures from 2007, where taken on a 'very' gray day. And we supported the winning horse.
