This is the place to be in Siena. The brick/layered Central thoroughfare of Siena is a sight to behold for its sheer enormity and beauty. The piazza is seashell-shaped and surrounded by beautiful structures all around.You will do well to take a video to cover the entire circle. This place is famous for the Palio horse race. There are many... More

This I would describe as one of the more memorable piazza's one can find in Italy. Looking at the pictures you might not notice that it's actually designed as a clam shell. Middle is lower than than the sides around the square.

Just imagine the crowds of Palio without the chaos and sit and enjoy a cappuccino (BEFORE 1pm!) or a glass of wine ANYTIME and people watch.

There was some architectural things worth seeing but Siena is rich with architectural, religious, and cultural history. Worth walking thru, do your homework before seeing Siena. The city is virtually a living and breathing museum.

If you visit Siena then this location is a must to visit. This location is where the famous Palio takes place and is a great amphitheater to sit around and soak up the centuries of history. There are many restaurants spread around this location all as equally good as each other and perhaps owned by one person.....who knows. On a... More

They cover the floor in sand for a medieval horse race. It takes 10 days to do the floor and the horse race lasts a minute and a half and people cheer like crazy. And the winner celebrates for 3 months. Haha. Didn't come during that time so it was of course quiet. But someday I want to come back... More

Walk the stairs to the top of the tower (10 Euros) and enjoy soaking in the incredible view at any of the lovely restaurants in the square.

Tourists take a rest here. We visited in April and it was crowded. In this Piazza you'll find the Palazzo Pubblico and its Torre del Mangia, Palazzi Signorili surround (the shell-shaped piazza) and at the northwest edge is the Fonte Gaia.
