Post Palio dinner at Piazza del Campo

The Piazza goes from racetrack to outdoor cafes within about 45 minutes of the Palio ending.  It is amazing!

Linda, Sarah (a young Canadian girl) and I had dinner at “Liberamente” which is right near the starting post.   The dinner was wonderful and all the restaurants were full as the city celebrated Palio!

Giraffa, the winning contrada, came through the Piazza about five times during the evening.  It is their time to show off now!

At some point someone sensible back at the contrada must have told them they couldn’t take the actual Palio with them anymore as the were getting more and more tipsy as the night progressed!
