Piazza del Campo - Siena, Italy

È bellissima! This is one of my favorite places in the world. I found this website thanks to Erin and Chris. It's a short video. Enjoy.

Looks beautiful, I'd love to see it one day.

We (boyfriend + his parents) tried to do a day trip there last fall during our stay in Florence. My boyfriend's father set his (much beloved by him) GPS map thingy for the Piazza and we set off. When we reached Siena he kept driving according to the directions, never thinking he should find a logical turn off and parking space, and we ended up (don't ask for particulars, I had my eyes closed and hands over my face) driving on one way streets in the midst of 100000 pedestrians with taxi drivers (the only cars allowed in those spots evidently) cursing us and no where to turn around. So anyway, we went to San Gimignano instead.

On my trip I chose Florence over Siena. Therefore, I have to go back and make it to lovely Siena. I love that accent!
And if all people spoke as slowly as the gentleman I would have no problem understanding the language. ;)

Loved this post.

gibber -yes it is.

jess - lol. you have to post about that one day.

chris & erin - I liked the Venice one also

rose - I went to Florence for two days. One of the mornings I spent in Siena. You have to go back. It is truly one of the beautiful places I have ever been. I don't remember everyone speaking as slowly as the gentlemen though. :)

Love this! I, too, wish the people spoke as slowly as the Sienese gentleman. I will have to make Siena a future stop.

I do wish they had a video on Positano and the Amalfi coast, though. Thanks for sharing!

rose in cali - if you go to YouTube you will find some videos of Positano.

Siena is amazing, def. worth a trip just for the Campo alone.
