Owner description: Siena's main square is the site of the famous Palio horse races that take place in July and August.

After visiting a number of hilltop towns in Tuscany, one quickly realizes what they all have in common - a piazza and bell tower! When you get to Siena you have reached the most unique piazza in Tuscany! One could spend hours in the piazza, having a bite to eat in one of the many restaurants after just staring up at the sky while laying down for a rest! A wonderful place to spend an afternoon...

Bustling busy living square -- I think it is one of the best in Italy -- there are no particular buildings of note ( apart from the 900 year old tower that you can climb ) but it is somehow magical.

The piazza is the perfect place to just absorb the Italian vibe. It is very laid back and people litterally sit on the sloping ground and enjoy a coffee, book or even a nap!

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!)

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.
