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

This is an amazing Piazza, surprisingly bowl shaped rather than flat. It has a lovely, timeless atmosphere and would be stunning at the time of the Palio. There are many restaurants around the edge of the Piazza which are great for a meal, watching the people flow past and whiling away the time.

The twice annual (both in August) horse race is run in the Campo. The sloping shell design is steeper in reality than photographs portray.

The story of the Palio is so interesting and the history of Siena begins in piazza del campo. However, save your money and eat at the restaurants outside the campo.

You must see the Campo at least once. I remember it being better maintained (clean), in the past....but its still a great place to sit and have a glass of wine and people watch.

If your in Tuscany an evening at a restaurant on piazza del Campo is a must. Great atmosphere and beautiful setting.
