Piazza IV Novembre is not to be missed during a visit to historic Perugia. The piazza is flanked by historical buildings like the city's Duomo and the Palazzo Priori which go back centuries. The beautiful Fontana Maggiore sits in the middle of the square. It is such a pretty fountain with so much detail - be sure to check it out. People love to sit on the steps of the Duomo and chat and people watch. This is a great location to meet friends and soak in the city, especially at night when everything is lit up.

We took the escalators from the ground level to reach to the top Old Town area.
The date November 4th and the statue of King Emanuele are both important in Italy.
There are impressive medieval stone buildings that stood tall around the piazza.
Keep walking and there are more monumental buildings and churches

This is the heart of old Perugia with a large square featuring a beautiful 13th century fountain, the Duomo and several medieval buildings that make this seem like something out of a Hollywood movie set. From the steps of the Duomo, students, locals and tourists alike sit and watch the comings and goings in this piazza. A wonderful place to take in the atmosphere and energy of a city that remains true to its past.

Impressive central city place. Good that traffic is very limited. Surrounded by several historical buildings. Just wear comfortable shoes, not high heels.

The lovely Fontana Maggiore, the unbelievably beautiful and peaceful Cattedrale di San Lorenzo and the Palazzo dei Priori with its magnificent griffon and lion. All for free. It was a joy!

We were here over Xmas and the piazza had lots of stalls selling trinkets and food, as well as live music. Fontana Maggiore is in the middle of the piazza, but a lot of stuff was being renovated/restored. Despite this, we really enjoyed it, lots of places to eat and drink. Perugia town Center is very cute and very walkable.

It’s one of the most picturesque squares in central Italy, with the three main sights of the city center (Priori Palace and the National Gallery, Cathedral, Fontana Maggiore fountain) all located here. Perfect for pictures all year round.

The Square is always popular among the locals and tourists. By if you are here during annual Umbria Jazz festival or some big event you'll find yourself in overcrowded place where people are having fun, singing, dancing. For ex, once there was a Pijama's party (to make a new Guiness record)- so all around were wearing night govns, nightdresses, slippers and bringing toys with them. It was very funny. There was even a band that played Beatles' songs.
