Not to be missed in the centre of Padova - excellent market and shops all around. High quality private shops and an excellent information centre nearby

The square is famous for its Palazzo della Ragione. This is an old name for the square, but still today there are several fuits stalls.

I visited this square on the north side of the 13th-century Palazzo della Ragione after wandering through Piazza delle Erbe on its south side. Together, these two squares offer one of the largest open-air markets in Europe. It was a Saturday afternoon in December and didn’t seem especially busy at that time. I only saw a few people as I wandered past stalls with myriad items, such as vegetables, fruit, spices, clothing and accessories. The only thing noticeable on the square, aside from the sea of stalls, was a medieval column. It features a small stone square near the top and likely was once used as a tent support. The palace made a magnificent backdrop. Both squares and the palace form a most worthwhile stop when in Padua. When the market isn't in progress, the squares hold tables and chairs, set out by nearby restaurants and cafes, where visitors can eat and drink.
