“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

After wandering through the narrow and busy streets of the old town, you turn a corner and enter a surprisingly large open space.It is typical of a lot of the large piazzas throughout Europe but nevertheless is enticingly pleasant flanked by beautiful old buildings. Worth a visit on the way to or way back from Piazza del Duomo.

“Unexpected!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

What we liked most was that we unexpectedly arrived here whilst wandering about, to find the Italian Lambretta rally assembling in the square. it was fascinating to see so many variations of this marvelous machine.

“Worth a Look”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

It's a few minutes walk from the Leaning Tower. Not sure how many people make the effort, but it's a really pleasant Piazza with some interesting buildings. I don't think you can go inside but they are worth taking a few photo's of. It's worth a few minutes of your time.

“Beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

The buildings are amazing. Loved the old school and the church. At night it is so quiet and cosy to walk around it, you can walk from there to the leaning tower. Absolutely recommended
