Come to the Piazza del Comune in Assisi! Walking here, sitting on the steps of the fountain, relishing a gelato, or having a glass of wine in this wonderful place is not only an experience that is pleasant for our times, but one that will take you back into the long history of this special place of Assisi, a place...

The Communal Square is laid out in a long rectangle with cobblestone streets leading up or down from each corner, and narrow stone walkways receding away from each side. On one length, the strong pillars of what was once a Temple to Minerva reach loftily to the bright summer sun, preserved because the temple, like so many other originally pagan... More

The fountain. That's what you see first. Then you realize this IS the main piazza. It's small but also feels it has not changed in eons. Sometimes the cars are moving slowly through it but often it is blocked from traffic, for the crowds of tourists wander by on their way to San Francesco or any of the other destinations... More

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.
