“City of Travertine”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

The piazza is more than an attraction, it is the social heart of the city of Ascoli Piceno. While there we celebrated and partook in the many festivals occurring. The Piazza has many small shops along with vendors parked along the perimeter. Cafe Melletti is also in the far right corner if using the picture above to get proximity.

Looks straight out of an Italian movie. The travertine pavement and the perfect shaped square creates a wonderful vibe day or night. A must see

“a must place to visit whilst in Ascoli”
Reviewed May 23, 2011

whilst in the piazza ask anyone to point you to piazza verdura or the vegatable market,about 50mts away,you will see daily no frills way of life of mainly farmers wives selling veg,fruit,poultry,cheese etc all home grown.Years ago the farmers usued to start out from their farms in the early hours with a cart laiden with produce to sell.A bit of old Ascoli that has gone on for years.With the clock in the piazza on your right walk past melletti thru a little rue and you arrive in Piazza Roma were you will find a daily market.Turn right on the main road by the market after 400mts arrive at Porta Maggiore were you will find the ruins of a Roman ampytheatre.[excuse spelling]

“The heartbeat of the centro storico”
Reviewed September 20, 2008

This piazza is truly one of the loveliest in Italy with the travertine pavement and Renaissance layout. Whether in daylight or at night this piazza is where the people of Ascoli Piceno come to see and be seen.
