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.

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

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.
