We visited Sienna for the day with a hire car. The Piazza was breathtakingly beautiful, lively and with great places to eat and drink.

Piazza del Campo is the heart of Siena. It is surrounded by many restaurants at which to rest and have glass of wine and people watch. You are within a close walk of everything within the walls of Siena.

We drove to Siena from our condo in Terricciola through the country side which was a spectacular ride in itself. Visiting the Siena Duomo and then the Piazza del Campo was a very enjoyable but tiring day. There was a chocolate festival going on and...More

More famous squares like St.Peter's in the Vatican and St.Mark's in Venice attract more tourists, but this is undoubtedly the piazza most worth visiting in all of Italy. This is where the famous Palio horse races are held twice annually, thus its gigantic size. You'll...More

Simply one of the most beautiful squares in Italy, with its own character and, quite a rare feature for a medieval main square, not based on a church. We were also quite lucky with the weather, if you like stairs and views, perhaps you might...More

We went at night and it looked so cool. Everyone flocks to the square at night. You can hear music, people talking and everything is in a soft light. People walk, stand, sit and lay in the square and it is a general meeting place....More

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!

Sorry about the delay in responding - we've been travelling. The hotel promoted the walking tour we did but it is available through the shop in the corner of the piazza. If you are standing looking at the tower it is in the... More

Hi, we had a rented vehicle while in Tuscany as it was easier to get around so I honestly don't know. I'm sorry!
