Is There Really A Donkey Race In Siena?

Discussion in 'Siena' started by Roberto, Mar 21, 2014.

  1. Is there really a donkey race around here? I heard about a "Palio dei Somari" in Torrita di Siena, it's a donkey race that takes place in March.
    Now, I'm not sure, but I think this year it will take place this Sunday, the 23rd of march :D
    Look, I found this link too :)
    What do you think? Are Italians crazy or what? :D
  2. Yes, it's true :) They really do have a donkey race and it looks like a lot of fun.
    Italians do know how to make the best of every occasion, this donkey race is an old tradition in Siena, it's an occasion for everyone to enjoy a nice sunny day and enjoy themselves.
    I can't find any nice pics on the internet, from this year :D I guess they're still too fresh :D
