Palio di Siena: The Siena Horse Race

In the Italian city of Siena, there is a famous horse race that harks back to medieval time. In the Palio di Siena, ten horses and riders, dressed in colors representing the 17 city wards, race (bareback, no less!) around the main square of the city's medieval center as tens of thousands of spectators cheer them on.

If the scene looks familiar to you, it may just be that you've seen it in the latest James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace.
