We did a week pilgrimage to Assisi, so my 1st review will begin with Francis's early regular rich guy life. (Unless you count the part where is dad imprisons him in a cell for not relinquishing his beliefs). He'd meet his friends here, just as locals and tourists do today. There are the vendors, the restaurants, the old Temple of... More

We kept on finding ourselves landing here for coffee or a beer or a quick wifi connection when needing to cool our feet. If you happen to need to buy something in town, you're likely to find it very close to this piazza. BTW, there's this nice sit-down restaurant, just through one of the arches leading out from the piazza.... More

It has been a pleasure getting here and watch this unique place, the Piazza del Comune it is located right in the old town in a lovely warm atmosphere, the beautiful surrounding in this truly amazing medieval location. Extremely hard to be missed and the best place around where having a lunch or dinner break, shops restaurant and much more.

We passed by here during our walk through town, and decided to grab a few pizza slices from the pizzeria near the square. We ate them on the steps of one of the churches close by, and watched the people pass by. It can be fairly crowded during the late morning and afternoon.

the square is stunning yet "sparkling" with bars, shops, people having fun ... and yes, cars and trucks too. we were amazed that such a square isn't pedestrian only, but traffic is light and gives a '50s (...1900, not 1200) feeling.

Mt up with fellow travelers and enjoyed a glass of wine. Assisi is a beautiful town and the piazza was charming.

Situated in the centre of Assisi, this a great place to sit and take in a glass of wine, coffee and food at one of the street café/restaurants as you wander through the streets of Assisi. The piazza has the Temple of Minerva, dating back to the Romans and worth looking in. There is a wonderful old fountain to view... More
