just like most other piazzas in Italy that intersect a main road, this one is very loud, very busy and always lots of cars and people! But that's Italy and that's why we enjoy visiting these piazzas and watching the world go by....police on every corner so no issues as far as not feeling safe...

We stayed in a hotel right in the Piazza - seldom quiets down - lots of great people watching. Horse drawn carriage rides, with cars and Vespas darting in and out everywhere when it's not closed to traffic. Watch your step when crossing - lots of fast vehicles.

This is a great place to sit, relax and watch the world go by. There are numerous pavement cafes and restaurants to choose from. Lots of lovely shops are close by and it's right on the edge of the historical centre of Sorrento. If you visit Sorrento you'll certainly come across this central spot! Take the opportunity to gaze out... More

Take your life into your hands as you dash across the busy road. The whole of Sorrento seems to meet here, This is Italy at its chaotic best moped , cars , buses and people all crowd onto the roads. You can just stand and watch it all happen on the pavement above the tiny road down to the harbour.

Lots going on, people moving in all directions. Learn how to cross the road without getting run over by taking note from any of the cafes and bars which look on to the square and all that is going on. In fact, best of all just sit and watch, before walking in virtually any direction to something interesting.

Definitely the place to people watch in Sorrento! Great place to find a bar and watch the world go by especially on a Sunday morning when all the Italians are dressed up and parading. Watch out for he traffic though, crossing the road is taking your life in your own hands!

Busy place! Two things that impressed me the most: 1. The view of Marina Piccola and open sea. It is absolutely spectacular view from the little bridge close to the American Bar. 2. Palazzo Jannuzzi store where you can see the most impressive samples of Sorrento fine arts: wooden inlaid musical boxes, chess sets, furniture, paintings, amazing ceramics, etc. It... More

A lively and beautiful square in the town centre that is somewhat spoiled by the traffic fumes. It was much better on the Sunday as the traffic is redirected and it appears to be so much better.

Everything happens here. On our first weekend there was even a free open air symphony concert put on by the local police.
