Historically famous within the inner city walls the whole Piazza in concave style to the center,expansive,quiet and perfect for photography capturing historical architecture everywhere,restaurants and bars are everywhere as well as some interesting shopping off the side streets,be sure to take a town map as it is easy to get lost in the narrow streets away from the Piazza.

Beautiful setting with nice restaurants and stores on the square. So lovely to see Young and old come together to share an Aperol Spritz on a warm summers evening.

This was one of the largest public squares we saw in Italy. Twice a year they have a horse race around the square. When we got settled into our hotel, we walked to the Piazza and had lunch--and later returned for dinner. It was very relaxing to sit and take in the scenery and people watch. Although we didn't climb the clock tower, this would certainly be guaranteed to give a panoramic view of the city.

We only spent one afternoon and evening in Siena but this was definitely a must see place. Amazing buildings to look at and the whole Piazza is surrounded by bars and restaurants, some of them a little pushy in offering you a table as you walk by. It was only 2 days after the Paleo so the soil put down for the race was still on the floor and somehow added to the atmosphere. To be here for the race itself must be an amazing experience and one we hope to savour next year?

This is a very large circular campo. There is a beautiful fountain, watering hole on one end of it. There are all kinds of people, children, pigeons, dogs and anything in between. People napping, studying, children playing and people just sleeping all over. Great place to people watch. Obviously, very hot to sit on on warm, sunny days. Can't miss it.
