Siena’s Campo & Palazzo Pubblico

The Piazza del Campo is often referred to affectionately as Il Campo. It is one of Europe’s loveliest squares, where crowds turn out to stroll, gossip or picnic. It has been the centre of Sienese public life since it was laid out atop the city’s Roman Forum in 1100. The governmental Palazzo Pubblico, with its graceful tower, was added in 1297, and the curve of brick buildings opposite built to match. The Palazzo houses the Museo Civico. Twice a year, the Campo is packed with crowds for the bareback Palio horse race.prac_infoTourist Office • Piazza del Campo 56 • 0577 280 551www.comune.siena.it
