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?

This is the place where the town comes to live, where concerts and attractions happens and people get together to socialize.

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.

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
