“A little slice of Bohemia........”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We loved it, we try to visit every trip because it is an unexpected surprise in comparison to the major historic attractions. It's hip, laid back, has a lovely ambiance day or night. Definitely quirky.

It has a calm feeling with many trees, a fountain, church steps and a number of restaurants to try. It's a great place for people watching........ not everyone's taste but we love it.

“Too bad...”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

It is a great square but too bad it is not kept clean. It is very dirty and attracts a strange crownd, especially on the steps of the church. There are however some good places to eat.

“Nice alternative if you are tired of crowds”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

I have visited this place in the evening because of Italian who have recommended me one of the restaurants over there. I had a feeling that there are more locals than tourists over there so it could be good advantage. This is nice alternative if you would like to rest of crowds. I have also eaten very good foods over there and not so expensive as in other parts of the town.

“Lovely piazza”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

This is a lovely, less crowded Piazza with some great restaurants. If you go in the morning, there is a farmers market. Don't miss the Santo Spirito church on the piazza which houses a wooden crucifix carved by Michelagelo when he was 18.

“We must of been there too early??”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

It was suggested that we visit this piazza to people watch. It was not very crowded in the late afternoon or early evening. We must have been there at the wrong time???
