Piazza del Campo might be one of the most spectacular medieval squares in Europe. This old but magnificent square was built around the 13th century and it was where traders used to sell their wares.

Torre del Mangia is a tall secular tower that was built to be as tall as the cathedral meaning that both had the same power in the city.

From the top of the tower you will see the beautiful views of Sienna and its 17 areas.5. Fonte Gaia
