The Chapel of Piazza is the marble tabernacle that stands at the foot of the Torre del Mangia in Piazza del Campo. Great place to people watch under the fall Tuscany sun!

The Cappella di Piazza is the small white marble chapel at the foot of the tower in Piazza del Campo. The gates were locked when we visited so I am not sure if you can go inside for a visit.

This was my second visit 25 years apart and it still took my breath away, sneaking up on my when I least expected it. You need at least two days here to see at least most of it but certainly not all. There are wonderful...More

Too much to see and understand without 2 full days, maybe 3 if you eat at all the wonderful places. Every Piazza offers something different. This ghas the views of towers and the tiny straate running off.

There is a small cappella, at the foot of the Torre del Mangia tower in Palazzo del Campo. It's only a small attraction, if pleasant enough. I have no idea why reviews for the Torre del Mangia tower have found themselves here however.

I have no way of painting a verbal picture of what you will see when you reach the top. I will say that I never heard anybody complain. It's not an easy walk to the top but all it takes is persistence.

I wasn't sure if I could make it to the top but there were stops along the way. Also, you have an assigned time to walk up so it isn't too crowded. There are windows as you walk up and a nice breeze.
