The Piazza del Campo has been the centre of life in Siena for centuries now, and it continues to be the focus of many tourist events and celebrations throughout the year. The Palazzo Pubblico stands at the top of the square and was built between 1297 and 1310. It is now a museum, but once served as the seat of all government meetings for the ministers of the town.

The Torre del Mangia rises about 102 above the piazza and visitors to the town can climb this bell tower for some of the most beautiful views across all of Tuscany.
