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

Great location, no traffic in piazza, plenty of places for a snack or glass of wine, easy access to a variety of shops. Can get crowded.

As we traveled to Assisi by car, we chose to park at the top of the town at Piazza Matteotti(underground parking cooler in hot weather and 1.20€/hour) and walk down hill to the tourist attractions. The Piazza del Comune is one third of the way down the hill and a great place to grab a drink, get a town map... More

The Piazza was not as interesting as others in Umbria, particularly in Todi. Not one to go out of the way to see.

Centrally situated in the magical walled city of Assisi is this piazza. It is small and somewhat intimate ringed with open air restaurants, gelatarias, and wine bars. The ancient Roman temple of Minerva stands guard at one end and there is a delightful old fountain at the other. You have the information bureau there as well as the underground Roman... More

I enjoyed this town square. From the center of it, you are surrounded by Temple of Minerva, a nice tourist info.office at the far end, an attractive water fountain, stone roads, and buildings. Good place to find a bench and sit for a break. Bottega dei Sapori has good take-out porchetta sandwiches and is located near Temple of Minerva. Grab... More

The central location from which all the streets run. St Francis' Basilica is one direction and St. Clare's is the opposite. Great location to relax between walks and enjoy coffee and gelato. Be prepared to do a LOT of walking up and down hills and brick stairs when you leave the only flat place. Views are well worth it! Central... More

A great spot to buy a few local foods or crafts down any of the streets emerging from this square, but it's underneath where the Roman foundations of this town have been partially excavated, that the history comes to life. Pretty fountain, very cute streets, Tuscan grub - what more is there?
