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

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
