This is the center of the city and it's a great gathering place. The clock tower is beautiful, and there are a half dozen great restaurants to choose from. A great place to sip Prosecco and people watch.

We go to Siena every year in December, this year for the first time there was a market in the Piazza del Campo. Hearts sank given what such markets are usually like but this one was very different. Some of the stalls were selling local produce, artichokes, cheeses, walnuts, olive oil, wine, etc. At one point I stopped to look... More

We were amazed by the sheer size and beauty of the piazza, it really is a sight to behold. The architecture, history and traditions are wonderful. The cafes and shops have so much charm and character. Siena is an incredible place to visit, I only wish we had been able to stay for longer! We could have easily spent a... More

It's overwhelming to stand in the middle of this huge piazza, the red brick buildings soar before you and lower storefronts surround. Hundreds of people sit on the pavement, have picnics, take photos, or relax in the outdoors. Cafe's and shops ring the piazza. If you're claustrophobic, go very early and catch the sunrise.

As we visited in December the place was not too crowded so we could sit at a caffe and enjoy the piazza. We were only in Siena for a few hours but we could roam the city and see buildings with their intricate architecture.

We visited Sienna in early September, the weather was perfect. We started our exploration of Sienna at the Fortress and then walked to the nearby Basilica and then along a myriad of lane ways and streets, some of which were quite steep, finally finishing at the Piazza del Campo. This walk gave us a great appreciation of Sienna and its... More

We have been to several squares throughout Europe. We visited this one today and really enjoyed it. Since it was the off-season (early December) there were barely any people here. Most entryways in to the square are poorly lit Medieval stone stairways that funnel you in. You can only catch a glimpse of the amazing vista that awaits, it sparks... More
