..stands the Mangia Tower (Torre del Mangia). Great place to take the city in and escape the narrow lanes and (even more hectic) hustle and bustle of the streets. Grab a coffee / aperitivo and take it all in.

What an amazing area. Siena was something special out of a movie. Great medieval town to walk around in for hours, then to enjoy the piazza for as long as you like. It was massive and quiet for a large piazza. I suggest getting a bottle of wine at the corner store and sitting with plastic glasses at the piazza... More

It is a wonderful square, full of old beautiful buildings that make you wonder if you haven't travelled back in time. It is a very large square, one of the largest I have ever seen, where you can visit the famous tower or just sit on the pavement and watch the buildings or people.

I love the concept of piazzas, its a perfect place for socializing and just hanging out. This piazza is one of my favorites, architecturally, esthetically and they way it make you feel when you are there.

The Piazza is a huge gathering place. Parades and other activities are held there for the citizens. It is surrounded by shops and restaurants.

Stand in the middle of the Piazza and rotate through 360 degrees, and you won't see anything that does not fit with this perfect mediaeval town centre - even the shops and restaurants on the ground floors of many of the buildings do not intrude on this impression. Catch it at the time of the Palio mediaeval horse race, run... More

This is quite a large square and no wonder considering that the Chapel of Palazzo Pubblico, Mangia Tower, Palazzo Pubblico, Gaia Fountain, Civic Museum and the Courtyard of the Podesta all call it home. People milling about, street vendors everywhere, and lots of tourist groups make this a very busy area in what is considered the center of Siena and... More
