For the size of the town this 'square' is really very big and is an impressive centre piece, nice spot to sit with a wine and watch the world go by for a bit before setting off to explore the warren of streets leading off of it. Very pretty at night.

Apart from this piazza being the location for Siena's dramatic paleo, it seems that the first Sunday of February is the time for a fancy dress pre-carnival fun run where kids and adults come in fancy dress and run 1800 meters. Lots of fun.

Just huge. This is part of the city where they have the horse race each year(hard to characterize, but it is much more than just a horse race, and the whole city participates). To see it rent the movie Quantum of Solace, the beginning shows the festival

The Piazza has plenty of food options and is just beautiful. We did apertivo at night and stared at the stars. It is fantastic.

Wonderful views & people watching. We loved the picturesque square. We felt liked we were seeing the real Italy here as it’s definitely a working town and not a tourist trap. We were fortunate to see a Palio practice with the drummers & flag waving demonstrations from each of the 14 neighborhoods. The kids came dressed in the colors of... More

One of my favorite cities in the Tuscany region of Italy. Don't miss the view from the cathedral and enjoy some local pastries.

The Tuscan region of Italy is one of my most favorites. Traveling from wineries and gorgeous country sides to great little towns like Siena is beyond words. Siena is larger than San Gimignano but still holds on to some of the old charm. The architecture is nothing short of amazing. The Piazza is where you go to people watch, eat... More

A place to grab a cup of cuppacino a daylight and a bottle of beer at night. A place to mingle around and sharing of life.
