This is a nice place to go for a walk and enjoy the area. Parking is a bit of a walk from the prato and at a cost

“Breath-taking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

This is so unusual and unexpected, a ring of statues along a moat-like feature in the heart of the historic centre. Beautiful both in the evening and during the day.

“Perfect place to sit and watch the world go by.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Can't say much more really, it's huge, airy, it has lots of benches and places to sit, and perhaps most importantly specially for families with small children is that it is safe and doesn't have unsavory elements or homeless people.

There are no food tents though, so if you go bring your own food. And there are no bathrooms either, but there are some in the city center.

We walked through it late on a Friday night as well and it was so serene, yellow lights shining on the statues and a light mist enveloping everything. Day or night, it's a beautiful place.

The square is so huge and with a small river around it and with bridges at intervals. Around the square and on the bridges there are many statuary! On Saturday is bargain there (you need over 1 hour to walk aroud it...)
