The Il Campo is one of the best ‚Piazza‘s‘ in the world...would have liked to see the horse race as well...

Stunning piazza. We came as they were setting up for the palio so it had a different vibe from when my wife last visited and people are around the edge with kids playing in the piazza. Fantastic atmosphere. ❤️❤️

Wow great location, shops bars restaurants all round and they've also have the Palio di Siena on in July and August. Check for dates. The atmosphere is great no matter when you go during the day or in the evening. Can be expensive but that comes with the territory. Definitely worth checking out the Torre del Mangia, the views are amazing

This is really impressive, main square in the form of a shell, incredibly beautiful. Also the setting of the world famous horse race, the palio, on August 16.
