    Lost in the middle of the beautiful Piazza del Campo, this pretty fountain is a bit "shabby". And maintenance is not terrible. Show provided by many (little shy) pigeons coming is there refresh!

    Source di Gaia or source of joy in the upper part of the square of the field opposite the Palace that houses the city of Siena. It is worth to observe all its Renaissance details.

    Placed in the Piazza del Campo it's a place where the pigeons go to drink by standing above the fountains and dipping in from the top.  more »

  • This fountain just doesn't fit in it's surroundings. Even without taking this into account, it looks like a cheep replica of poorly designed fountain.
  • Palio is the valuable highlight on Siena, we had a lucky day!
  • The fountain is not matching with the square, it is odd...
  • Amazing place; we captured lovely pics; and spent good day with dearest friends on OCT. 2013
  • The fountain is a part of the Piazza Del Campo, water is very clear, the status reliefs are beautiful, these reliefs are 19th century copies of originals by Jacopo della Quercia. You can stand next to the fountain to watch the people in action in the huge plaza, and enjoy the coolness of the fountain at the same time.

Where to stay in Siena

To enjoy panoramic views of Siena's historical old town, check into a luxury hotel in the city center. If you are looking to escape the activity of the main tourist areas, consider staying at a hostel or guesthouse just outside the central areas. Private multi-room villas in the residential neighborhoods offer landscaped outdoor space and secure parking. For something a little different and considerably less expensive, explore one of many B&Bs in the vineyards and olive groves of Siena's countryside.
