An interesting part of your walking tour. We used Rick Steves' walking tour in his book and downloaded the free audioguide from his app.

A Loggia is a upmarket medieval porch. Unlike the loggia in Florence you cannot enter here and sit and the decorations and ceiling can only be viewed from the street. In my opinion it is not worth going out of your way to see this.

The Loggia della Mercanzia (Loggia of Merchants) built in 1438 (approx) was a place for social gatherings in the medieval times. It's fenced, no entry, viewing of decorations can be done from the street only.

"Gli Uniti" is above the door - Let's Stick together!! a Men's Club - so no entrance only a View!! The Gothic-Renaissance Loggia was built about 1420 on (adjacent to one of the entrances of IL Campo)

The loggia was used by merchants to conduct business from the 15th century. It has a nicely decorated ceiling but access to the loggia is now barred by a fence but all details are easily visible from the street.

This place, where merchants did their trading of old, and where the banking system started in Siena, was really interesting. It is similar to the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence.

This is the spot where merchants and money changers did their business. It's small but tastefully ornate. You can't enter (there's an iron fence) but it is easy to see the ceiling and admire the marble carved seating on each end.

It has nice statues and a nicely decorated ceiling, nice to look at for about five minutes. Not a must, but you'll come past it on your way to the main square or the Cathedral.
