“Beautiful!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

The piazza is really beautiful. the shape, the red bricks of the floor, the fountain, the buildings around, the people ... it's such a great place! Can'r understand the comments of people disappointed. Maybe they were expecting some disney-like experience. And the city center in general is really beautiful. It makes a great daytrip from Florence.

“Just a plaza”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

It was a great place to watch people. It was not particularly beautiful but definitely a "Happening Place". It was too cold for us to sit in the many surrounding cafes, but in nicer weather, it would be a relaxing time off your feet!

“not like it looks on tv”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Was surprised to discover that the Piazza was bowl shaped and oval. Had seen that Piazza in a James Bond movie but it's really quite different in person. Loved that it is surrounded by medieval buildings

“Quite a view”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Main reason for visiting Siena, famous for its' horse race and buildings. Narrow streets and uphill climbs. Take a walk around the course to savour the atmosphere.
