When I went the piazza grande was quiet... Which was perfect opportunity to go and read all about what goes on there. Old style horse battles take place at certain point in the year...

This place could not be more medieval, transporting you back in time with banners draped from the buildings and a large well near the centre. A fantastic place to transport you back in time! Our second visit here.

Under Vasari' s gallery are lovely cafés perfect for... More

When we visited in both June and August 2014, they were setting up for a medieval jousting festival and Piazza Grande looked super impressive! I'm so disappointed that we missed the festival!
