“very old square”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

It is a very pleasant place to be just next to the church. Our hotel was close by so we walked though here a few times. The only downside was a gypsy woman who begged there.

“The usual Piazza!”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

The square is nothing special apart of being the place whre the Basilica is! You must go there if you like to visit the Basilica.

“Only a link to the cathedral”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

Actually it is not really a great square compared to the others I have seen in Italy. Anyway, I passed through it since it is linked to cathedral but nothing caught my attention.

“Sit and plan your visit here.”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Italian squares should have busy restaurants, nice views of antique buildings, a fountain or other place of interest and perhaps sellers or artists. This square was busy with locals, the pizza was good and there was an obelisk to investigate. It was quiet and a great place to plan our approach to the city.
