Owner description: It's no wonder that this is one of the most historic and picturesque squares in Italy: in antiquity, it served as a Roman forum; today, it contains many historic buildings, sculptures with a popular and colorful market overflowing with fresh fruits and vegetables.

is a nice place in Padova, but don't go after evening, is not dangerous for your safety, but is not well populated. All activites are closed and the square becames sad and cold. Vegetables market in the morning is so tipical and nice.

Piazza delle Erbe is very interesting. There are layers of history that stretch back to Roman times and reach to the present day. Everywhere the eye looks, there is something to see. My favorite things in the piazza are the fountain with the Madonna of Verona and the baroque style Palazzo Maffei at the far end of the piazza. I... More

Such a wonderful Piazza! Always vibrant and busy. Great place to wile away a couple of hours browsing market stalls, photographing the historical buildings and statues or just people watching from one of the many cafes...

We were actually visiting here in late September 2013. Loved the old city surrounds and the shops are wonderful to walk past on the way to the piazza. Market stalls were operating and there were lots of people around as a major convention in the city had just finished a day or two beforehand. Live broadcasting was taking place in... More

We were just randomly walking around town and stumbled on this piazza. It wasn't too crowded and the architecture was really interesting so we sat at one of the patios and had a spritz and watched the scenery and people. It was a very relaxing spot to spend some time. There is also a taxi stand so if you need... More

We arrived in Piazza delle Erbe after dark and it took my breath away - it was just so dazzling - all lit up. Restaurants surround the square and it was a hub of activity and life. There are many attractions to visit just around or near the Piazza during the day time.

There are always stalls selling souvenirs in Piazza Erbe and on some festa days, like festa di Gnocchio, it is a sea of people cheering on the parade with streamers and confetti. There are several restaurants with tables set up outside which are worth visiting. The original Town Hall is in attractive striped marble. Through an archway is Piazza dei... More

Piazza delle Erbe was originally laid out towards the end of the Roman era and was the site of the ancient Forum and centre of public and private business. It has undergone several changes since then but remains historically interesting, surrounded by historical buildings. There are market stalls by day and restaurants by night, so it is usually busy. It... More
