, is here at the Piazza. The lovely piazza occupies the site of the old Roman forum, and for much of Siena’s early history was the city’s principal market-place. Cafes, restaurants, and fine medieval Palazzo line the square, which also happens to be dominated by the Palazzo Pubblico and the Torre del Mangia. While the Piazza del Campo stands at the heart of the city of Siena, the Duomo (one of Italy’s greatest cathedrals) and St Maria della Scala serve as additional cultural landmarks.
