Within the beauty of Siena, this is an interesting place to visit. An open market most of the time, there are plenty of little things to appreciate within the area. The area could be very crowded, specially during the heat of the summer, so either try to go very early or very late cause otherwise, you will be cook.

So much history in this old section of an old city, it can sometimes be overwhelming. The Piazza forms part of a ''must see'' range of attractions including the magnificent Duomo which are within an easy walk of each other. The visitor should however be aware that to patronise the cafes on the Piazza will cost more than it would... More

This small Piazza has many beautiful buindings around and it is worth to take a time and visit, specially when the market is working.

Worth a short detour from the main sights of Siena but on a summer day this place can feel very crouded.

Apart from a great view and you are going to get a number of these as you visit various other attractions around the City there is not a lot to bring you to this piazza; there are a couple of restaurants and a covered market area but I never saw any sign of a market taking place.

Nice area, a less then 2 minute walk from the piaza del campo. Nice view to the south of Siena. Restaurants here seemed to be really nice, we can recommend the Trattoria Papei, very friendly staff, good food for an good price, the pasta with duck-sauce was fantastic.....and we went home drunk because of a lot of free refills.....I wish...

Although somewhat of a glorified parking lot, there is a great view of Siena and the complex of the palazzo and Torre from the rear. The vista over the green space is quite stunning as well and makes a change from the mediaeval built-up-ness of Siena

Piazza del Mercato is a good example for how abound great historical architecture is in Italy. The view is great, the hall is in itself a nice example of an significant old construction, and if there is some festivity filling it with life (say, artistry as at Notte Bianca on June 21), it can be nice there. But even than,... More

The Piazza del Mercato is in a quiet street behind Il Campo and not as has been described as the site of the Wednesday market!! It is surrounded by a few restaurants and has views over the valley.

Bigger than expected, lots of vendors of clothes, leather, bedding, furnishing, jewelry, etc. Nice to walk around, maybe buy a few things. A lot of 'Made in China' items, be aware. Food stands worth a visit. A great place to visit on a Wednesday morning.
