'Via di fontanella is also perfect to see something from the structure of the city.
Siena is build on three hills and thats why the city has some sort of star shaped form.
'Via di Fontanella' is on the edge of one of those hills and your walking up 'Piazza Del Campo'

You can see the other hill with a green area in between , that is the 'Contrada di Valdimontone '

But the nice thing is , you can see the 'Torre del Mangia' and the 'piazza del Mercato'. You can see the difference in hight and the impressive high , thick walls.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
