A picturesque piazza.It is cool to think it was used to host trade fairs since the Middle Ages, uniting people from all over Mitteleuropa and the Italian Peninsula. Many bars and restaurants around it, where to have aperitivo or taste the local cheeses and salumi.

There is not much to see or do here. Maybe this is due to the saison. There is no choice of restaurants and shops are closed in the lunch hours till 3PM. It is a quiet square, but picturesque. I understandthat market days are busier!

...what all the fuss is about. Yes, this is an Italian square with cafes and coffee shops. There is people watching involved, but I wouldn't say this is a "must do" or something unique to Domodossola.

When in Domodossola, take time to visit this square, have a coffe or, on market day, mooch around like a local would. Take time to stroll along via Briona to one of the caffe (bars as the Italian call them)

When the movies set a scene in an Italian village square, this is what it looks like. The buildings are quaint, period pieces, that are filled with great color and lovely details, there are several restaurants and cafes with outside seating, and the square has...More
