The market closes down and they begin to bring out tables for dinner. Have a spritze or wine ,watch the action next door and move over as the tables fill around 7:30. What a perfect evening. The food is good as well.

very nice square to sit in and have a spritz in the evening before heading off for dinner. Despite being quite busy it felt really safe and all the bars were very friendly

Best place for your afternoon spritz, also suitable for orientation in town. Key this piazza into your navigator, while walking from the train station, and you won't get lost in Padua

Awesome place for summer, drinks before dinner. Cozzy and not dangerous... You always need to worry when walking around at crowd or touristy piazza in Italy or Europe, but for this one, you can totally enjoy and feel safe

Unmissable sight a step away from the stunning Palazzo della Ragione and beautiful Piazze adjoining. Of particular worth is the Torre dell'Orologio, built under the significant influence of the Venetian Republic. Built in 1426 it is fascinating to note only 11 signs of the Zodiac. Have some fun finding out which is not represented! Compare it with the clock face... More

First, we viewed the architecture and then we began to explore the booths and shops. This is the heart of Padova with people everywhere buying, eating, drinking and playing. You get to see how the citizens live if you take some time to watch. Have fun and take it in.

We were lucky as it was market day on the Piazza, so not only did we see the historical buildings and shops but also shopped the market. Many shops to browse and good gelato to eat. I had vanilla, and my spouse had chocolate/raspberry.

We enjoyed much time here shopping and sampling the many restaurants, gelato, and spritzes. Close walk to many stores and tons of al fresco seating.

You have to look at the architecture of this piazza as it is different with every building. In the middle is a range of restaurants but look around at the very interesting buildings. A must see.
