Il Palio Viewing


New member

I was told that you might have some insight into Il Palio seating or viewing areas. My mom and I were thinking of going to Il Palio on August 16. Do you happen to know if there are some balconies around the Piazza del Campo which still have availability? Any help or guidance that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Seating on the balconies and even bleachers is not easy to get without the right connections, a lot of those are offered to locals and the only way to get access is to be there on the spot and ask/pay.

However, this year I actually found this:

I had seen another, but they wanted to rent out the entire balcony to a private group, which is the case for you.
