A very nice place where the history of the town can be felt and numerous restaurants around half of the square

The Torre de Mangia dominates this nine-part, extremely large piazza.

It was very historic and not especially crowded byt my view was tempered a bit by the expensive, overrated meal we had at one of the restaurants. However as someone else pointed out, operating costs including the leasehold must be far from cheap for the business.

There is no seating in the centre of the 'square' as I assume installing some would be at odds with history.

The Piazza del Campo is a shell-shaped town square in the center of the Italian city of Siena.
At the lowest point of the square are the Palazzo Pubblico, town hall and museum, and the Torre del Mangia. From this center, the square, fan-shaped, is divided into 9 segments.
Opposite the Palazzo Pubblico is a public fountain: the Fonte Gaia ('Fountain of Joy'). This 15th century fountain is the end point of more than 30 km of water supply through underground channels and aqueducts.
The square is known, among other things, because it hosts the Palio delle contrade, a horse race that takes place twice a year in July and August.

A stunning place to sit at sunset at one of the restaurants. Amazing to know that the wild horse racing happens here.

When walking from our hotel to the piazza, we were so excited to just the wonderful space. Having looked at this on the internet before traveling, we wondered how the in person experience would compare. It just takes your breath away. It was quite busy at the end of October. This place during summer but be overwhelming. You can pretty much sit anywhere. You just cannot lie down. The view of the surrounding structures truly does give it an amphitheater atmosphere. The streets are like spokes to this central area and we visited this over and over. There are numerous places to eat and shop though given the rent they must pay, I would recommend getting blocks away to save money on your meals (which are going to be better) and get a better meal at that. I would just take your time walking around and sit and relax and remember why you left the monotony of our work lives to enjoy the specialness of the piazza. Enjoy.

Wonderful heart of a beautiful old city. Mingling with Senese and people watching and adjusting to Italian pace.

Great place to people watch and relax. Lots of nearby restaurants, but most are not great. Go a couple blocks away and find much better options. Having aperitivos here is good though. We enjoyed stopping by and sitting in the piazza every night we were here just to soak up the atmosphtere and watch the people.

Lovely square to walk around and/or stop for some refreshment. Very nice views over the city from the tower. However, tickets get sold out pretty quickly, so plan to get them ahead of time. We tried on two afternoons but they were sold out until the next day.

We were here just days before the running of the Paleo. What a space with fountain and 360 degree views all around.
