TRAVELER COMMENT: Stella has a tremendous breadth and depth of Siena from both a historical perspective as well as a current day resident. We have had numerous tours in the past, Stella ranks at the top. She did the impossible with our group of 3 teenagers and 4 adults, she kept everyone's attention throughout the entire tour which she extended to answer all of our questions.

 

 

NEW AND EXCLUSIVE

 

Meeting the Jockey

 

 

Feel like a guest in the Farm of Gigi Bruschelli named Trecciolino, the successful jockey of the Palio di Siena!

 

I was born in Siena and I belong to the Contrada della Torre, one of the 17 guilds in the Palio of Siena. In the past years I was looking to learn more about the life of the protagonists of the Horse Race, that is the jockeys, so I met the young man who grew in my neighborhood and became the smartest jockey in the Palio Horse Race in Siena and who is still consider the King of the Race. Gigi Bruschelli named Trecciolino.

I started learning about his life and exploring the farm where he trains his splendid horses every day and thanks to him and his wife Annarita I can now, with great respect in a very friendly atmosphere, visit with my guests the farm and learn about all the details in Gigi’s carreer and his horse training techniques.
