Piazza Fontanesi is a beautiful piazza with plenty of trees for shade. The day we were there was hot so sitting in the shade enjoying a meal from one of the restaurants along the piazza was lovely.

Visited in a sunny Sunday, was full of locals. Still, a quite peaceful place (if you don't mind for the kids fouling around :-) ) with many trees and interesting buildings. Great place to have an Italian coffee.

On a Saturday morning, the piazza is a bustle of activity with stalls selling organic products. People mill around or sit in the cafès lining the piazza drinking coffee or aperitifs. It is magic!

a small French square full of trees and benches, a small bistro, restaurants, pantterei and salumeria, sometimes in the summer with good jazz music. A surprising Reggio Emilia.

This is the most comfortable, relaxing and quite place during the day and night, except the Saturday, cause during it locals sail their own products, which is so fantastic and fun. Around the Piazza you can see a lot of small coffee houses and restaurants,...More

This is an elegant and charming town square. I went on an afternoon in autumn and enjoyed a coffee outside a cafe. The trees had begun to shed their leaves, the atmosphere was one of fading gentility. But charming nevertheless.

During the day, Piazza Fontenesi is a great place to visit - many small shops and restaurants. Summertime, in the evening - especially on "Pink Wednesday" - there is entertainment. Great entertainment and open seating ... bring your bicycle or just walk over ... sit...More
