This event is considered one of the most famous traditions in Florence. It happens every 24 June and it consists in an early form of football, that originated in 16th century, and that resembles rugby. It is a very violent match and for the Florentines it is one of the most important events of the year. Head to Piazza Santa Croce and enjoy the match and the historic parade. As for Siena’s Palio (the city’s historic bareback horse race) there are very little rules. Be prepared!
