“Awesome vibe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

This was a great place to just sit down (yes, just on the ground!) and take in the amazing architecture right in the centre of town -- this is the centre of things at night! (it is much more affordable and authentic to bring your own wine and just sit in the middle of the square than to pay top dollar at one of the restaurants!)

“12th Century Piazza.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Each year in July and August the bareback horse race is held in this shell-shaped Piazza. A lovely place to sit and have a drink and take in the sights.

“Fabulous place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

A unique, bowl shaped piazza where you can either sit at a table in one of the bars or take your own sandwich and sit on the tiled surface of the piazza and just watch the world go by. Stunning!

“Love at first sight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

I insisted that we should make at least one visit to the Piazza every day during our 8 days stay in Siena and every time I caught a glimpse of it from one of the little side streets I would feel my face light up.
