Photographer's Note

"Be prepared", for as you come down the narrow streets of Sienna,you suddenly see this amazing open space opening up in front of you!

I was stunned by the beauty of the square, and at the numbers of people sitting on the ground all over the square.

This is the Piazza del Campo, with the Mangia Tower and the Church of Santa Maria.
A Tuscan hill town, Sienna is one of the nation's most visited tourist attractions.

The Piazza hosts the Palio horse race.A traditional medieval horse race which is run around the Piazza twice a year, on the 2nd July and 16th August.

Thank you for looking.
