You feel yourself in the middle age when you walk around this pretty interesting shape square. A lot of bar, café, restaurant are all around. Just sit down and watch what is going on - people are sitting everywhere and enjoy.

It is a real medieval space, a huge place for the palio. A real historical mood. There are plenty of people, but it's great to come and look around, it was a great experience for me.

Nice place to sit and relax and people watch. Plenty of coffee shops around the perimeter. This is the only place where we saw people sitting in the plaza like it was a park or beach in Italy.

We walked around the square which has quite a steep slope to it. It's surrounded by restaurants. Lots of people were sitting and standing around. The architecture is interesting.
