great place

One of the most beautifull square I ever saw in my life. With great old hauses around and descending ground, with fountain and great restaurants around.

Note: I traveled here in May, 2014 What a lovely piazza this is! Walking around it, sitting on the warm stones, my uncle also told me that when he was in university here, he would sometimes sleep the night in the piazza, as its shape and position retained warmth. We simply sat for just under an hour, while I enjoyed... More

The historic center point of Siena. Take a walking tour so you can know the history of Siena and understand the importance of the piazza. Also, they have a annual horse race and this is where the race occurs.

Piazza del Campo, a medieval square in the historic center of Siena, has a distinct shell-like appearance and is one of Europe's great medieval squares. There is much to see here - from the Palazzo Pubblico (with its Torre del Mangia) to the fishbone, red brick pavers. The Gaia Fountain is a must see as well as the town hall... More

Really is a must see spot to sit down and have a beer or coffee watching people in the busy square. Pick one if the many restaurant's on the sunny side and enjoy a quiet ale

Visited the Piazza as part of a guided tour. It's a massive area with shops and cafes around the outside. The area where the Palio takes place is specially surfaced to make it safer. You can buy most of the race flags from the shops.
