A nice piazza, but nothing more than that. Maybe I am just overwhelmed with all the piazzas in Italy.
There is a restaurant called Caffe Concerto at the piazza. They serve a great lunch buffet.

This is your typical Italian Piazza, cobble stoned, surrounded by wonderful architecture, slightly dirty which for me adds to the rustic beauty that I love about italy.

The piazza is surrounded by cafe bars, restaurants and shops. We visited during a public holiday so during lunch and evening times it was very bustling but we also made use on our first day of the in between time where the streets are practically empty and it really helped us find some streets which would have been difficult when it was busy.

We stopped at various cafe bars for a quick espresso and they were around eur1 each, but do your research on restaurant's and trattoria's as there are some tourist traps in this area.

Very nice piazza with restaurants around, the Cathedral is undergoing exterior renovation so is covered with scaffold.

It is a typical Italian square but if you like these, you will like this as well.
The area boasts a wide variety of small bars, cafes, restuarants and designer shops (of course).

If you are in Modena, you ought to see it.

Really very nice, with monumental buildings all around.
I love sitting at the local cafes, having a coffee or a beer, enjoying the view.
Last october some parts of the cathedral were covered due to restoration works.
Don't visit Piazza Grande wearing high heels: it's covered with cobblestones.
