The Siena Palio is a thrilling 700 year old Italian Extravaganza that is a real insight into Italian culture. Sadly due to Covid it was cancelled in 2020.
For 2021 all of our suppliers have put into place new hygiene procedures to ensure regular antibacterial cleansing is done. In hotels sanitizing of high touch areas have been increased, and tables, chairs and menus are sanitized in-between sittings. New hand sanitizing stations are being introduced where necessary and as in the UK, everyone is frequently washing their hands.
However we do appreciate that we need to do more than to just reassure you re Covid impact so here are further measures we are implementing to give you confidence to book.
*At the time of change we would need to agree the new dates.
*If there was any increase in airfare that would be an additional cost.
*Please note you would need to be flying with EasyJet for us to able to offer this flexibility.
*Please note if combined with Lucca these terms do not apply
We would also strongly recommend you take out Travel Insurance. We would recommend Campbell Irvine who covers many of the risks associated with Covid affecting your trip: such as being diagnosed with Covid, or being put in isolation by Track and Trace contact Campbell Irvine ISB on 0207 938 1734

Flying to Italy
The airports have put in new procedures to ensure multiple daily sterilisation procedures of all areas with specific focus on high touch areas such as trolleys, check ins, bathrooms, doorknobs and handrails to mention a few.
All airlines have put into place procedures to keep you safe from infection. It is worth noting that on a flight air is replaced every 2-3 minutes as it passes through a series of filters 20-30 times per hour. The HEPA filters on board mean the air on board is better than in an office environment. The following surfaces are specifically disinfected before you board: screens, seat belts and buckles, tray tables, arm rests and window shades, light switches and air circulation controls, head rests, overhead lockers, as well of course as the restrooms. You will need to wear Masks at airport and on the flight. The crew will also be wearing masks and you will be asked to take your seat immediately and not to move around during the flight. Only ONE hand luggage is allowed and this must fit under your seat. The cabin lockers are not being used to reduce contact points. If it does not fit in then it will need to be checked in (at no extra cost). No Food or drinks will be served on board the flight.
