Pretty fountain, although better described as a pool of water with some statues and carvings. Very busy around here as the area is swamped with tourists. Good luck finding space for a selfie!

The fountain is easy to find as its in the main piazza but its only a average fountain in terms of its design and artwork. Its difficult to get good photos due to its size plus its usually very busy.

Fonte di Gaia is a beautiful fountain located in Piazza Il Campo. Have a seat and enjoy the blue clear water of the fountain while enjoying the view of Piazza Il Campo.

Stopped at this beautifully situated cafe/restaurant overlooking the camp in Siena - great location. Good coffee and drinks. Service was good. They also accommodated the dog we had with us out on the terrace.

The defined detail and beauty of this fountain could leave you gazing for hours. Ceramic Artist and master craftsman Jacopo della Quercia designs this perfect fountain that was replaced using the same design in 1859 in Carrara Marble. A true beauty!
