Piazza del Campo in Siena on Oct 22, 2018

Photo 1: Piazza del Campo is the principal public space of the historic center of Siena, Tuscany, Italy and is regarded as one of Europe's greatest medieval squares. It is renowned worldwide for its beauty and architectural integrity.

Photo 2: I stood in front of Piazza del Campo on Oct 22, 2018.

Photo 3: The Palazzo Pubblico (town hall) is a palace in Siena, Tuscany, central Italy. Construction began in 1297 to serve as the Republic of Siena's government, which consisted of the Podestà and Council of Nine, the elected officials who performed executive functions (and judicial ones in secular matters).

Photo 4: Palazzo Pubblico and Torre del Mangia.

Photo 5: The interior of Piazza del Campo. After the local introduced us two areas, Piazza del Campo and Palazzo Pubblico, we have free time 2 hours to have lunch on our own and taking pictures of these two areas. I paid for a ticket 8 EURO to go inside to see the interior of Piazza del Campo. It is magnificent beautiful. This photo is inside ceiling.

Photo 6: The main altar of Piazza del Campo and floor decoration inside.

Photo 7: One side wall decoration of Piazza del Campo inside. Full of oil painting.

There are more pictures of the interior of Piazza del Campo in my smartphone but Asia Friendfinder only has so much can take. I took each oil painting a picture. It is a huge cathedral. If you want to see more Piazza del Campo interior, please Google it. I paid 8 EURO ticket to get in and took many pictures inside.

Let me explain more clearly. Photo 1 and 2 are Piazza del Campo outside building. Photo 3 and 4 are Palazzo Pubblico (town hall) and Torre del Mangia. They are two different area but not too far away from each other. After the trip leader showed us these two areas, he said 2 hours free time for us to have lunch and browsing these two areas of our own. Then meet again in front of Piazza del Campo.

I skipped lunch and anxious to see the inside of Piazza del Campo. On the side of entrance, there is a ticket booth and souvenir shop. The lowest price ticket is 8 EURO. I asked what 12 EURO and 15 EURO for? But the 3 Italian women at those ticket booths don't speak English. They explained to me in Italian and I don't understand them. So, I purchased 8 EURO ticket in order to see inside. I took more pictures but just show you some due to the size of this blog.
