Piazza del Campo

Siena’s Piazza del Campo is considered to be one of Europe’s greatest Medieval squares. The sloping piazza is located in the heart of the city, surrounded by restaurants and cafés, with the impressive Duomo stealing the show. This lively square is a popular place for locals and tourists alike to rest and soak up the atmosphere, many choosing to enjoy a gelato or drink on its red bricks. It’s probably most famous for Siena’s il Palio, a historic horse race that takes place twice a year in the summer.
