We visited during the day, when the piazza was home to a busy market. It was fun to walk around among the throngs shopping for fruits and vegetables.

Strolling through this lovely old market is a joy for senses. Fresh local fruits, large assortment of sweets and candy...even cheese products. Surrounding centuries old architecture makes it a very lovely place.

An attractive square in central Padua surrounded with a variety of restaurants. The market was just closing up as we arrived but there was a constant flow of people through the square on foot and by cycle as we sat and enjoyed the ambiance.
