A very nice place to enjoy a great time in Siena. The square is very large with nice restaurants and bars around. Sit in one of this and enjoy the view taking an delicious ice cream.

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.
