A must if you visit Siena is to sit in a cafe or restaurant on the campo and enjoy food and wine from the region! You can people watch from your table, enjoy a solo opera singer who will perform through out your dinner and meet other travelers sitting at your table nearby. A truly delightful part of my trip!

I was looking forward to visiting this piazza - il Campo - and the famous tower di mangia - somehow I thought it was going to be huge. It really isn't, and it's so crowded! We took some time to sit at one of the cafes across it to contemplate and read a little about its history. Focusing on the... More

During our many visits to Siena, we would find ourselves sitting in the piazza with other tourists and locals just relaxing and people watching. Many folks would lie down to take a nap in the sun and many children would be running around.

Absolutely beautiful Piazza which is also nice at night under the stars. Would say the restaurants and bars around the square are quite pricey compared to others around the city

Sadly, torrential rain meant we lost a lot of the time in Siena sheltering with about 60 others while rain bounced off the pavements. But even in the rain this is a wonderful Piazza to visit. We were lucky to hear a free choir performing, and also to see the autumn parade of medieval dress to be judged the best... More

You can't miss this if you are in Siena. We went and sat in the sun and watched people go by at mid day and again at sunset for drinks and a meal. Touristy and expensive but the view & experience is worth it.

This piazza has been described as the best in all Italy - not surprised. I can't imagine what the horse race around the circumference of it would be like but the pictures and paintings of it are breathtaking !
