Nice square in the shape of a shell with a fountain. Lots of restaurants around the square, recommend to search for a more local restaurant

This piazza is flanked by the Palazzo Pubblico and it’s Torre del Mangia as well as a multitude of terraces. Sit down on the piazza as well or on one of the overpriced terraces and enjoy your surroundings and watch the other people enjoying themselves....More
