“Lively, unspoiled and historic”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Visit in the lead up to the Palio which occurs in early July and mid August. The town is alive and the Campo the place to be to see processions, bands and singing groups from the teams that take part in this historic and violent race.
At other times it is a beautiful meanie a city centre and well worth the walk to visit

“Siena's heart”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

A must-see in Siena, the Campo is the very heart of Siena. Ringed with cafes and restaurants, the best treat is to snag an outside table just as the sun goes down, and wine and dine as the Palazzo Comunale is lit and blue hour arrives. It doesn't get any more romantic than this

“A hot day in August”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

The day we visited, it was blistering hot. The piazza, while impressive and filled with intrigue, was open to the elements and we wished to be in shade. The line for climbing the famous tower was long, and it was rather warm for climbing.

“Centre of Siena”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

You can't go to Siena and not visit this site. Impressive and an experience if in Siena for the Palio race no doubt.

“This is how a square must be”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

A magical place in the evening.

Careful with kids running around. Twice we say kids falling down and getting hurt and then ambulance coming to treat them.
