Il Campo: "Watch the Sunset/Moon Rise" Siena Nightlife Tip by SJTravel

Siena Nightlife: 13 reviews and 9 photos

Have a seat on Il Campo and enjoy watching the sunset/moon rise. You won't really be able to see the sunset because of all the buildings around Il Campo, but it is a nice time to enjoy Il Campo. The brick of Il Campo by then will cool off significantly and so it won't burn to sit or lay on the brick if you want to. There are a lot of people who like to hang out on Il Campo during that time, so there will be great opportunities to people watch if you like that. It is very nice and peaceful, so definitely bring your journal, sketch pad, book, and/or digital camera and enjoy your time. While you are sitting there, you may be able to hear the soft music playing from the restaurants nearby. It is relaxing and so beautiful. Palazzo Publico is beautiful while the sun is setting and the moon is slowly making its ascent. You can get some really great photos. One thing that I really recommend is putting on some bug spray, if you have it, before you decide to go and sit there. Once the sun started going down, the bugs started coming out and that is what drove me away.

Dress Code: Wear whatever you want to wear. Some people recommend not wearing skirts only because of the way you may be sitting once on the ground. I wore what I was wearing during the day(capris and a t-shirt) and I was fine, it did start to get a little cooler once the sun went down. You may want to put on some long pants or grab a light sweater if you are prone to getting cold.
