A large square that seems always to be full of people and dogs! On a nice day it's an ideal place to sit and people watch, buy unusual presents, eat fantastic food and appreciate some stunning architecture.

The piazza is large, a bit of a transport hub, a place for lots of graffiti (like much of Naples) but it has a buzz and there are many book stalls nearby.

Full of character. Leads to the main walkway, Toledo & also through Port Alba to the even more charming Piazza Bellini. But it's a bit grubby & the bars are poor- expensive & touristy. They need to learn how to use litter bins! So do...More

Busy busy busy. Big square that always has something going on. Insane traffic on one side, fantastic architecture and statues on the other. Homeless people sleeping next to the metro entrance. Usually a seat can be found but the seats are concrete. Loads of stalls...More

Perhaps choosing a restaurant in the vicinity of a large tv screen, on the evening of the World Cup semi final, was not one of my best plans. The piazza was lovely, however, away from traffic, yet plenty of buzz. The restaurant wasn’t busy, all...More

Assisi transportation (2 Replies)
Hi, I am thinking of taking the Sulga bus from Rome to Assisi; I believe it arrives at Piazza Dante Alghieri but I can´t seem to find any bus line to take me into town. I´ll be staying near Duomo. Is there a way or would it just be easier to take the train into Assisi?

Molo Beverello to Piazza Dante (4 Replies)
What is the easiest way to get from the Molo Beverello to Piazza Dante? I see it's Metro line 1 yellow on the metro map but I can't find "Molo Beverello" There are several "ship" icons but again not sure which. If I were to guess would it be the Centrale /Augusteo? I will have to return back to catch a ferry to Sorrento same day. I don't know if I should buy a metro/bus pass. Hoping someone can fill me in. Thank you :)

The station is called Municipio - it's beside the castle which you can't miss. Dante is the second stop on the line after Toledo.

We are considering the Hotel Megaron by the Piazza Dante Metro stop and am wondering if anyone knows about this hotel and also if the area around Piazza Dante is okay.
