This corner of the city really shows the historical background of the ancient Signoria scaligera and it is one of the most fascinating corners of the town. Take your time to explore all its corners and the different facades of the buildings.

As most tourist already know by now that if you keep walking the neighborhood, you'll end up in a piazza. You walk another three blocks and another piazza. This particular piazza has the famous Dante statue on in.

Agree with comments here. Nice, quiet and good place to stop for a drink or lunch. A statue of Dante is there but other than that, not much to keep your attention here. But you can sit to enjoy the quiet and see people walking around the square.

Stumbled on this square by mistake when looking for Piazza Edge. It was a lovely quiet square surrounded on 3 sides by restaurants serving pizza, pasta etc. When we were there, 30th June 2016, there were a couple of street entertainers. Piazza Edge is described as being more atmospheric but for us it was too busy and noisey. Piazza Edge... More

whenever there's an event around the city, Piazza Dei Signori is the place to be! From Christmas markets to Valentine's festivals. It's buzzing.

I visited this square and found it a bit underwhelmed. it offers a quite escape from the adjacent market however. Cafe Dante is great place to grab a meal on a summer night and the staff there is excellent.

Leading from Piazza Erbe under the arch of the suspended Whale`s rib bone, you enter his Piazza. This contains a mixture of interesting and lovely buildings, all worh photographing. In the centre is a statue of Dante. This Piazza is less visited thus less crowded than Piazza Erbe.

The most memorable sight in this piazza is the statue of Dante, a most serene, classically simple sculpture of the famed poet.

There are a few restaurants in the square. When we were having lunch there was an old musician who played there. We also saw a few children dancing around the square while their parents were having lunch.
