Twice a year, 35,000 people pack this area to read these crazy, insane, bareback horse races and of course the Italians love it. As we walk around Siena you’ll notice these little crests on different buildings around the city and there’re 17 different districts. Each neighborhood even has its own church and stable. It is absolutely a beautiful little town.
