Description

They've been horsing around in Ferrara for over 800 years and they show no signs of stopping any time soon. The Il Palio di Ferrara is one of the oldest horse races in the world, dating back to the 13th century. It is still celebrated today on the last Sunday of May, when people flock to the city to watch this incredible race. However, the race itself is not the only attraction, the Palio is also a festival, where people dress in beautiful period clothing and listen to medieval and renaissance music.
