This square has maintained its Renaissance air until today. Born as an antechamber of the castle, wanted by Ludovico il Modo: steeped in history. It is possible to observe the original porticoes and frescoes. The facade of the cathedral of St. Ambrose closes this beautiful quadrilateral.

Beautiful piazza, great to sit in one of the cafes; drink, see and relax. The day we arrived there was a military exhibition, so full of people and life.

This is an interesting town (I have to come back because didn’t had the time to visit other attractions and to appreciate well the details) if looking something out of Milan with historical interest (in reality is historically connected with the Sforza and Leonardo) this town is worth a visit.

This evening I'm in the beautiful town of Vigevano, not too far from Milano. In the pictures you could appreciate the wonderful Piazza Ducale.

one of the nicest piazzas in Italy (tough record to beat), but Vigevano is a suprise to most visitors. It is next to the Castle where you can "meet" Leonardo, the Sforza's etc. worth a trip

It is one of the most beautiful places we've seen over our five trips to Italy. Although being very busy, it still felt very homey. It is full of lovely restaurants, cafes and shops. It was nice to relax sitting in one of them enjoying the view while sipping at an excellent cocktail.

This town is really beautiful and it's worth it a visit. The piazza is amazing and very beautiful. When I visited this town there was a fair very much interesting about backery and bread making. It was really good to speack a bit with the people there and hear about their passion. The tower close to the square is also nice, but i really recommend to sit down in any of the terraces there and just enjoy the view and atmosphere.

Was looking for a pit stop between Genoa and Milan Malpensa Airport and found Vigevano on a forum. It was our last stop on a week long Italian road trip and did not disappoint. Beautiful plaza and town, and we had the bonus of being there at 11am during what looked like recess for the school kids. Instead of the middle and high schoolers being stuffed in a cafeteria, apparently they hang out in the piazza, which added a nice sneak peak into the culture.
