Studied here for a year 20 years ago and now back with friends and family. Has not changed of course, always spectacular...even when weather not cooperating!!! Siena really can be walked and enjoyed in a day, but Piazza Del Campo deserves a bit of time...More

Walk around and through it during the day, then find a place to sit at night with a nice chianti or a local beer and do some people watching. The restaurants along the square are all fine; slightly more expensive, but you're paying for one...More

A must see when visiting Tuscany. It is a place full of art, history and definitely a place for architecture lovers. The history is always fascinating. There are also plenty of restaurants and shops to enjoy.

Took family (with teenage and young kids) to Siena, and really enjoyed drinking, eating and walking around this magnificent piazza.

What a square! I believe there are a lot of great places to visit but the Piazza del Campo is definitely one of them, maybe even the greatest of all. The square has a lot of restaurants around! Great atmosphere around.

With the city hall as a main architectural master piece, this square is almost magic - Especially if you think in the old times... It also worth to take the time to visit the city hall from inside. Unique frescos.

The nearest airport to Sienna is Florence Italy. The drive from Florence to Sienna is about one hour and a half. If you are driving straight from the airport to Sienna, you do not even have to go into the city of Florence... More

Yes, parking within the ancient city walls can be quite difficult, though you can park outside the walls and walk in. As with most ancient sites, the central city is pretty small and walkable, so you don't need a car. If... More
