In all of beautiful Siena, the wide, central Piazza del Campo is the focal point. Here the tourists meet, the pigeons flutter, the moon drops behind Renaissance and medieval buildings, and cafés and trattorias serve happy customers. Twice a year (in July and August), it’s also the location of the famous Palio di Siena, a medieval horse race around its perimeter.
But most of all, the Piazza del Campo is ridiculously photogenic. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it…night and day, I couldn’t restrain my shutter finger at all. Bellissimo!
