We were only in Siena for four days but kept coming back here for drinks / relaxation and to soak in the Italian atmosphere. We could only imagine the extra sights and sounds on the Palio horse race days!!
A unique Piazza even without the Palio! Great people watching any time of day...enormous piazza with all sorts of interesting cafes & bars. Can't imagine this with the Palio and 10,000 shouting passionate tifosi here....maybe after 2 carafes of great Senese vino!
