“Mind Boggling!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Its almost too much to try and figure out what to see next and still keep your hand on your purse. The best thing is to book with a tour company because then you can just listen and look without being the planner.

A great place to walk, sit and watch. Lots of things going on and wonderful buildings to gaze at around the square. Good fun.

“Magnificent place to just soak up the atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Rented an apartment right on the old square so we could soak up the place every day. Just gorgeous particularly at night when the place comes even more alive with buskers and street performers. Lots of tourists (and those looking to fleece them) but still one of the great squares of the world!
