A beautiful sloping piazza at the heart of Sienna

This is the center of old town and is a beautifully shaped sloping piazza. In 1983 our 2 year old would race around chasing the pigeons and there are still kids doing that today... read more

Great for people watching, lovely fountain, don't be coerced into eating at the restaurants around the piazza, there are much better hidden on the little streets.

Del Campo is our main reason for visiting Sienna. As expected, not the best restaurants on the piazza. But very near you could find nice places to eat.

Visiting this place has been on my wish list for years after having watched the Palio races for ages. I was astonished at the size and shape of the square and could hardly imagine how it could be transformed into a race track! The square is sloping towards the centre and the space between the stone bollards and buildings is... More

Hearing the history of what happens here with the horse races is awesome but for an average day it's just an empty center of town. Though we did enjoy some gelato before walking to the Cathedral
