Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco

Traveling to Italy this summer? Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco is set within one of the oldest and best-preserved estates in Tuscany, sprawling across 5,000 acres. Situated in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Val d’Orcia, the resort (owned by Massimo Ferragamo) has the best of Tuscany at its doorstep. For example: the resort is offering a special package for guests to witness the Il Palio di Siena horserace, a favorite event for vacationing celebs, which will take place in Siena on August 16.

Guests get a front-row seat to the action with exclusive access to a private palace in Siena overlooking the Piazza del Campo square on August 15 and 16 to check out the race (and partake in plenty of people-watching), while treated to free flowing food and drink. The Private Palio Experience includes three nights accommodations with daily breakfast at Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco.
