“Take a table in a cafe, relax and enjoy your day”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

There is nothing left of the amphitheater, but its oval shape is preserved. The square is now occupied by cafes and restaurants, so you can take a table you like, relax and enjoy the day observing the people on the square and children playing their games.

“A nice tourist trap”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Tourists and locals, all seemed to enjoy the restaurants there. You will always find one in the sun (or in the shadow).

“An oval shaped piazza...”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Never seen one like this before, build on what was a roman anphitheatre, almost nothing left of that but for some outer walls.
As such it's not that big, surrounded by pastel-coloured buildings and of course crammed with bars and restaurants at ground level. Make shure you track the sun before seating...

“Real Suntrap!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Probably more impressive if viewed from above. Mainly taking over by restaurants and pleasant enough to sit in with a glass of wine but can be a real suntrap if you can't get to one of the few shady spots
