We were having lunch at an outdoor cafe in the same piazza. It is quite busy with both walkers and cars trying to navigate the narrow roads, but a great spot to sit, relax and enjoy the sounds of the fountain and an occasional misting on a warm breezy day.

THE place to rest while exploring the town of Assisi. This is a large piazza and everyone sooner or later winds up here! It is surrounded by cafes and restaurants,is basically pedestrian only has a lovely fountain and could not be better for people watching.

Just hang out in one of the bars and soak up the atmosphere. Usually some kind of music or street theatre going on. Eat a meal in the restaurant with a balcony overlooking the square. Amazing.

Spring for a coffee or mineral water at one of the cafes and watch the world go by. The people themselves are the show.

After a day of sightseeing in Assisi you need to sit on a bench at this piazza. You'll love it. It's great for people watching. And when you're finished people watching, you head for the bar, accross the Minerva Temple, for some delicious icecream. Biscotti is a great choice :-)

This is a great place to start your shopping on the Via San Francesco. Relax with a cool drink and watch the world go by or get going with that shopping!

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
