Take a walk through and enjoy the unique surroundings of an ancient hillside Tuscan city. It's a great place to get pictures of the tower as well.

Beatiful piazza with a pleasant atmosphere. The Fonte Gaia and the Palazzo Publico makes this Piazza one of the finest in Italy.

There are no words to describe the kind of an asymmetrical beauty of Piazza del Campo. I put this on a list of sights everyone should visit at least once in their lives. Piazza del Campo is divided into nine sections which represent the rule of The Nine (Noveschi) that governed Siena between 1292-1355.

Lots of atmosphere, restaurants reasonably priced and buzzing. sOmewhere to people watch and let the world go by. Sit with a drink and watch the sunset by the tower. Great for shopping too. All the shops off the main square so don't spoil the architecture .

The main piazza of Siena. We visited the piazza a few days before the famous Palio horse race. We saw the piazza being prepared for the Palio. Palazzo Pubblico is the highlight of this piazza. A must visit location in Siena.

You cant miss the Piazza Del Compo...Siena is also a walled city so you hve to park the cars outside the city and take the elevators to enter the city...the city is very beautiful with red color building..the Duoma has many restaurants...souvenir shops...wine shops.... so visit and enjoy

The Piazza del Campo is an interesting town center for its shape, but other than that we found it to be huge, hot, and very crowded. We saw it and left quickly.
