You can walk up to the top, to the Town Hall and main square "Piazza Grande" where Bravìo delle Botti (a barrel race) takes place the last Sunday in August, when the competitors have to push a barrel uphill. The city is divided into "contradas" each with their own history, colours and costumes. August is an especially exciting time to witness their displays.
