This is a most beautiful place. Please wear shoes that can withstand slippery steep pavements. Many of the entrance roads to the Puazza are steep and slippery. Once there there is often entertainment. But, beware an ice cream can set you back 12 euros! So,...More

In the centre of old town - vibrant & always lots of people. Have a drink at any of the cafes/bars facing the square to soak up the atmosphere but would suggest eating elsewhere. A definite must see & experience when in Siena.

I have never been to a place so beautiful architecturally. It turns to a magical place in the night times. Visit it with your wife or gf. True romance!!

Absolutely gobsmacking architecture. This is the place where the Palio horse race takes place twice a year. There are restaurants almost half the way around the edge so no problems finding something to eat or drink.

A big public square at an alrming angle, surrounded by cafes and public buildings. Only place to sit (other than cafes) is on the fountain.

You must visit and hang out in the main square of Siena. I recommend both early morning and in the early evening for times to go. Early morning has very few people so you can really take it in and also enjoy the sun rise....More

Sorry about the delay in responding - we've been travelling. The hotel promoted the walking tour we did but it is available through the shop in the corner of the piazza. If you are standing looking at the tower it is in the... More

Hi, we had a rented vehicle while in Tuscany as it was easier to get around so I honestly don't know. I'm sorry!
