About Piazza del Campo

Piazza del Campo is the principal public space of Siena and a masterpiece of medieval town planning. Known for its distinctive shell shape and beautiful architecture, this square is not just the physical but also the cultural heart of the city. It's famously home to the Palio di Siena, a historic horse race that transforms the piazza into a dynamic spectacle.

Best Time/Season to Visit:

The best time to visit Piazza del Campo is during the late spring or early autumn when Siena enjoys mild weather, making it perfect for exploring on foot. Visiting during the Palio, held on July 2 and August 16, offers a uniquely vibrant experience.
