Ferrara's Palio

The oldest Palio of the world

Ferrara's Palio returns this year, the most ancient Palio in the whole world, even dating back to 1259: 8 "contrade" (medieval quarters) compete for Palio, through exciting races with Renaissance costumes, among flag-throwers, dancers and events, which will animate Ferrara in more than a month. You'll live this year too timeless emotions surrounded by Renaissance sceneries.
