A great square in the centre of Como. Well laid with trees surrounded by a few bars and restaurants views of lake and town cathedral.

Absolutely beautiful place to stroll and casually relax and enjoy the beauty of the Piazza. We sat and enjoyed a cool drink and the shop window displays were so creative. So typical of Italy and its squares on a warm summer day.
