By the time we got to Siena and got settled in our B and B it was late afternoon. Our BnB is only a minute away from the Compo. This is a large piazza that dips downwards and is a popular meeting place for tourists and locals. We were hoping for good light for photos, but the buildings are just tall enough that you don't get much except on the tower.
It is Friday, our one full day in Siena. We have been to Siena before, but just for a quick trip. We arrived when everyone else did, including all the tour buses and the Compo was packed. This time we have two evenings when all the tour buses have departed and since it is October, not that many tourists. Much better for photos. We also have time to visit the Duomo. The ticket also includes the Baptistery and the museum.
The outside of the Duomo is beautiful and so detailed.
