Perhaps the thing that makes Siena most famous is Piazza il Campo," a fan-shaped square where twice every summer there is "Il Palio," or horse race. They fill the piazza with sand (as you can see in my pictures, normally it's just brick...we were all quite worried about the poor horses!) and thousands of people ...
