In Siena there are 17 carnival celebrations, one for each district (contrada). This is a special chance to immerse yourself in the spirit of this city. The afternoon is dedicated to children with games and the evening is for adults with masked parties and performances.
Do not miss the gastronomic events.
There is also the game of “pentolaccia”, shows of magicians, contests of jokes and live music. Mardi Gras is celebrated all together in the Piazza del Campo, a large open-air theatre (free admission).
