A friend and I went on a 50 degree sunny day in December. There were few shops and restaurants open, so we had little choice for a sit down with a glass of white wine.

An ancient small square totally surrounded by typical old houses , such an amazing view that'll bring you back in time !

Interesting plazza market that was originally build as a theater during the Roman era. A lot of the original theater wall makes up the outside of the current buildings.

This is just a beautiful place, whether you are walking through, shopping or sitting drinking cocktails. We had the best Bellinis we have ever tasted and nibbles at midday! We returned one evening for cocktails before we went for a meal elsewhere just for the ambiance.

You can spot the curvature of the buildings that make up this former Roman amphitheater. There are many interesting shops and places you can sit down and enjoy lunch. There are also souvenir shops.Its nice just to wander through.

Beautiful piazza in what was formerly a Roman Amphitheater. Five or six small restaurants and the same number of stores and gift shops ring the piazza. Some have doors on both sides of the Piazza and the neighboring streets.
