“Great views”
Review of Piazza del Mercato

Reviewed 25 October 2012

Great place with views of the gardens and the back of the Palazzo Pubblico to have lunch but some restaurants seem to insists on quantity rather than quality. A nice retreat from the crowds on Piazza del campo.

the square and the tower make a stunning sight. always buzzing with activity, interesting things are always going on. we had some live music happening out of the blue, much to our delight. the shopping and restaurants are fun, too.

Piazza del Mercator has a farmers market only on Friday which was very nice. However, how many people are on Sienna on a Friday? This is the secret I did today with my daughter. While standing the mercado there is a viewpoint looking over the valley. Go to the right of this point and follow the road down (if you go left there are stairs) so...follow road 50 yards and see a goal drive on your right. Turn here and follow it down through the gates and peach orchards and vegetable gardens. At the mid point of the gravel road there's a restaurant and some goats and a donkey in a field. Keep going to the end ( all in all a 1/2 mile walk) and you will find a medieval recreation of a vegetable garden and poppy fields of flowers in June. This is such a serene and beautiful stroll. Stop at the restaurant for a cappuccino and biscotti on the way back up the hill. Listen to the birds and enjoy the respite.....
