The Piazza is situated in a central part of the city. In the heat of the summer it is a great place to rest in the shade of the ancient temple of Minerva (1st Century BC) or dine at one of the many establishments.

Great place to stop and take a rest while walking Assis. Get a gelato and just perch somewhere and people watch!

This little piazza is right in the center of town where everyone (all the tourists, at least) seemed to congregate in the afternoon, and before and after dinner. Lively and fun place to people-watch as you eat a gelato.

Great Atmosphere, with many choices of restaurants, cafes and souvenirs stores! If you stay at Hotel Umbra, you will be right there in the middle of this Piazza and close to everything.

So many memories of this beautiful square! Coming out of the Hotel Umbra and looking straight across to the ancient temple of Minerva (now the church for the Franciscan Third Order). Pottering along to a coffee shop and finding an outside table, where we could watch all the comings and goings of life in Assisi. At night when you cross... More

From this piazza the streets branch out to all the other major sights so you cannot miss seeing it. the fountain and statuary are typical but it is the entire ambiance of this part of town that sets it apart.

We ate at a restaurant at the plaza, I forget the name, but when we ordered agua minerale, we saw him go out to the plaza and get water from the fountain spout.

Several centuries of Italian history right here. Don't miss the Minerva Temple with ancient blood sacrifice stones near altar. Piazza del Comune is the center of activity in Assisi. Excellent shops on square for Umbrian ceramics. After dinner, this is the place to see and be seen. Also, a choice of cafes or gelato stops. Beautiful fountain!!

This piazza is the center of town activity and includes what is now a church that has flooring dating back to when this was a temple where sacrifices were made to the gods. You can see drainage for the blood. A spectacular Roman ruin!!
