“The perfect outdoor space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We sat in a cafe for a couple of hours just enjoying this wonderful space with local wine, Tuscan bean soup and Pizza. Then we ordered espresso just so that we could enjoy the space a little bit longer. Very romantic

“The heart of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

All streets in Siena seem to lead to this wonderful square, visit it many times, but make sure you're there for sundet drinks and watch the locals and tourists alike gather to sit, relax and drink an aperitivo

“Lovely Piazza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Lovely piazza. Take a seat at one of the many restaurants, enjoy a glass of wine or a gelato and watch the world go by.

“Loved Siena!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Several times when friends heard we were going to Italy, we heard how much they loved Siena. We'd ask what in particular did you love, but they'd answer "everything." I'm afraid I'm going to be among the ranks who says "everything." There's just a feeling one has there and there's no better place to enjoy that feeling than at the Piazza at one of the many sidewalk caffes, where one can linger over a glass of wine while watching other people who seem as enchanted as you by the huge piazza, the ancient buildings, the history. Siena is truly a special place, and even more so in the early evening when the swallows fill the sky above the Campo.

“Perfect for gelato break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Grabbed a gelato from one of the many surrounding cafés and sat in the piazza for a while, just watching the world go by -- very pleasant place, especially on a warm, sunny day! If you're on a budget, get take-away food and come sit here for lunch instead of a restaurant -- more affordable and just as pleasant!
