Piazza Sant'Agostino Reviews
シエナの町の南側にある教会前の広場です。公園のような感じで、観光客も少なく静かでした。ここからはシエナの町も見えますが、少し下っていったところからはもっと町を見渡せて景色がよかったです。 more »This is the square in front of the church on the south side of the town of Siena. It was like a park, and there were few tourists and it was quiet. From here, you can see the town of Siena, but the view was good because it looked over the town more from a little down.
Piazza dell'omonima chiesa, con giardinetto pubblico e gioco per i bimbi da qui si gode una bella vista sulla campagna senese circostante. more »Square of the same name church, with public garden and play for children from here enjoys a beautiful view of the surrounding Siena countryside.
