This is a central location with cafe's and shops close by. It was very attractive and close to one of the main churches.

The Piazza is full of stunning architecture and is right in the city centre. There is a great selection of cafes and bars which aren’t extortionate (which is surprising considering the location). Definitely worth a visit, whether you’re strolling through or want to relax for...More

Even though it is in the center of town, the bar prices are not outrageous, so I would often find myself back here for a beer or spritz in one of its bars, taking in the view of the Basilica and watching life go by....More

Besides surroundind monuments, this square is also great to sip a drink and mingle with locals. During my visit, I was lucky enough to catch a Felini's movie that was publicly and free of charge aired on this square.
