Great place to find a seat and take it all in whether it is on the square itself or one of the many eateries surrounding it

A review of Siena can't begin to describe this great city. The food is spectacular. The people are friendly and helpful. There are great places to stay. It is close to the wineries. Just go.

Great people watching. Large variety of dining opportunities, gellato everywhere. The water from the fountain is drinkable and delicious.

A huge dominant feature in Siena, full of life - maybe a bit like a beach, and with lots of cafes, and atmosphere.

Central 'square' of old Siena. Nice place to have a rest, you'll need to sit on the paved ground, but that's how the locals do it. There are a few restaurants that surround the area, look nice but didn't actually try any.

I love when you walk into a piazza and it just feels like what you imagined Italy would 'feel' like...this piazza had that feel.

It is a square but circular. Twice a year there is the Palio, a very enjoying horses race. Horses of the "contrade" of the city run around the circular square three times. What i don't really like is that there are to many people.
