The Palio di Siena is a very popular and important cultural event, but it is also worth turning your attention to the plethora of festivals on offer: Siena Jazz, the Siena Film Festival, the musical nights of Chigiana, as well as the many summer concerts, festivals and country fairs.
There are also numerous cycling events such as The Eroica, the Granfondo del Gallo Nero, and automotive events such as the vintage and prototype car race, the "Coppa del Chianti Classico" (Chianti Cup), the Corsa di Alcide (classic endurance race for historic cars) and the Millemiglia.
For lovers of "vino", there are many wine events from May to October.
Alongside these events we also wish to highlight the weekly markets held in the various localities; full of scents and colours, they are unique occasions to get to know the territory and its characteristic products.
Do be sure to ask for confirmation on the markets, as the dates may be subject to change.
