We visited it on a saturday, week market and a full square. It was very nice and alive. During lunch the market broke up and the square reveiled itself. Great!!

Nice quiet place to come to at night. We enjoyed the viewing the medieval architecture in the low light of the piazza.

This cathedral was lovely, had audio guide from the baptistery (ticket office). Some lights needed to be put on for us to see, saving the environment. Beautifully carved antependium Altar of st James in silver. Handy leaflet. The tower tour was fantastic, great views across the city, uneven steps and surfaces so not for those less able or unsteady on your feet. Well worth the multi ticket.

Nice square with all the important buildings in a city of old surrounding it: such as the cathedral - bell tower - baptistry combination, the town hall, bishops palace etc. A good example of an Italian square but without the hordes of tourists that you will get in the well known villages. You may have hordes of locals on market days though.
