    The Palazzo Pubblico is the old Gothic Town Hall, and was constructed in the late thirteenth century.

    Beautiful town hall and tower. One of the two must see architectural wonders of Siena.

    A public government house built in the 1300s, the interior frescoes, in nearly every room, are gorgeous. Forest greens and siena brown, making the spaces warm, even livable especially compared to the cold pretentious Pitti Palace in Florence. The mostly secular images are more humanistic. The frescoes were commissioned by the government, rather than the church. The exterior is wonderful, but do go inside.

    The 330-foot Tower is Italy's tallest secular tower and the view is worth the climb. The tower is closed when it rains.

Description

Travel back to the days of Siena's medieval grandeur at the Palazzo Pubblico e Museo Civico. Located right in the center of Siena on the Piazza del Campo, the Palazzo Pubblico (Public Palace) is nearly impossible to miss; it is the building with the massive bell tower! Walk inside the Museo Civico (Civic Museum) to find a wealth of masterpieces from the late Middle Ages that were commissioned by the city's republican government, the Council of Nine. In the Hall of the Nine is the Museo Civico's most renowned fresco, Allegory and Effects of Good and Bad Government. This intricate paean to the benefits of benign governors acted to praise the city council for its past wisdom and exhort it to future wisdom.
