If you are in Siena, this is a must see.

Beautiful place which has hosted several movie recordings. Sit outside in one of the restaurants in the square and enjoy the place and people walking by.

We were truly enchanted by medieval Siena, its narrow lanes, its medley of Gothic buildings, all manner of tethering rings, beautiful piazza of Il Campo and Duomo. It was great to be able to stay just around the corner of the cathedral, in an apartment we booked via Airbnb. We had 5 nights in Siena and enjoyed the city as... More

This was just a few short hours of stopping on our way to Florence while on our Best of Italy tour with Trafalgar Tours but it was like stepping back into the medieval times with all the old architecture and was a very quaint but busy place filled with more tourists probably than residents. I had some wonderful gelato at... More

This piazza is large and home to the most beautiful cathedral I have seen. The Gothic architectural style is absolutely stunning. This is a MUST place to go and see.

If you visit Siena you can;t miss Piazza del Campo. A very imposing square indeed. If you're lucky and you're visiting on a sunny day, do enjoy a coffee on the square, it will be a very memorable coffee.

They try to squeeze as much euro out of this one. This is the ultimate tourist haunt. Stunning streets of four storey decaying housing 6m apart. Quite claustrophobic at times. Get lost away from the hordes and see Italians living, you don't have to wander far. 2wanderers.com

The Piazza is the focal point of the city, where the famous Campo is run twice each year (July and August). It is a fantastic space and you can really feel the buzz, even when it's low season and the Campo is all over. Simply a must see in Siena.

Stayed in Siena for a week while my husband was there for work. I'd wander around the town during the day and meet up with him for dinner. I didn't need a car all week. The Piazza de Campo was a great place to rest while I figured out where to next. Also a great place to have dinner at... More
