A wonderful gathering space to take a break from the uphill/downhill terrain or beautiful Assisi. I recommend getting a nice gelato and coffee, having a seat, and enjoying the view.

There are some nice sizeable cafes with spacious interiors and a covered portico for outdoor seating. Below the modern-day piazza, explore the ancient Roman Forum.

A typical Italian city square surrounded by shops, services and restaurants. The highlight is the Temple of Minerva, now a Catholic church, which dates to Roman times. It can't be missed as you usually have to pass through it on the way to the many...More

Piazza del Comune is in the heart of Assisi and probably one of the best preserved medieval squares in Italy. On the square, you'll find the awesome Tempio di Minerva with its Roman facade, the Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo, the almost 50 m tall...More
