Beautiful place, excellent vibe, gorgeous architecture. Just chill in the piazza - lie on the ground, sit somewhere, whatever. You can easily spend an hour or two here at least. I've visited both during the afternoon and in the evening (summer time). It is magnificent.

The impression as you enter the piazza is fantastic. The cafes look good and reasonably priced. Amazing to imagine the Palio and full of people. Stunning architecture.

All roads lead to.........the Piazza del Campo! Wherever you arrive in Siena and start wandering along you will end up here. Spectacular centre, and busy. Plenty room for kids to let off some steam as it is pedestrian area.

Siena is a very small city that is still very much tied to it's traditions and this Piazza is a big part of it. The amount of history in this small piazza is fascinating to hear, not to mention it's beauty. This Piazza and the whole historic part of Siena is a must-see when in Tuscany.

...but overrun with kids and tourist groups following raised pink umbrellas. If you can see past that then you'll enjoy the magnificent architecture and hear the history from its walls.

We spent all our evenings sitting on the piazza del Campo. You will see couples, families, and friends there - all enjoying the lovely Piazza. There are many restaurants on the Piazza, so choose a place, and let the old town take you away!

Three years ago I took a cruise from Venice to Barcelona which was wonderful, however being on a cruise limits the sights you can visit. This time, I'm traveling by train and can't express enough how beautiful Sienna is and the surrounding Tuscany region. Sienna is the perfect city to use as a home base for exploring Tuscany. We stayed... More

Once you pass by the through the narrow streets which lead you to the Piazza, a wonderful space is open in front of your eyes - an Italian piazza bathed in sunlight with people singing, dancing/performing, tanning, eating & drinking or just admiring the beautiful architecture. Don't eat at the restaurants in the Piazza: they are pricey and the food... More

What can be said? This is the famous Piazza in Siena which attracts thousands of people every day. Approaching from the side streets makes an amazing vista.

Very interesting form of the Piazza. Many people, but still atmosphere like in home - you can lie on the ground fine. There are Palio events running here twice a year. And every weekend there are some small events or celebrations in honour of those famous competitions. We saw fights by pillows :)
