Luxury holidays in Italy – local customs

During a luxury holiday in Italy you can learn much about the local culture and take part in many festivals and celebrations.

The most important and world famous festival in Tuscany is notoriously the sienese Palio, bareback horse race of the Contradas that take place in July (June 30th to July 2nd ) and August (from the 13th to the 16th).

But many are the festivals throughout the year, which are sure to delight any visitor.

The wine celebration in Chianti takes place in the second week in September. Even if you don’t go during the celebrations, a visit to Chianti, one of Tuscany’s most famous wine-making areas, should be part of any luxury holiday in Italy. You will be able to tour the wineries and sample the produce.

In October, you can watch by Sagra del Tordo (Feast of the Thrush) in Montalcino. This includes a hotly contested archery tournament, parades and a spectacular medieval feast.

If you choose the Palazzo Ravizza for a holiday in Italy, our helpful staff will be able to give you more information about the local culture and customs you can experience during your stay in Tuscany.

With a huge selection of festivals, parades and exhibitions, as well as the beautiful countryside, a luxury holiday in Italy can be as relaxed or as busy as you want when you stay at the Palazzo Ravizza, Siena.
