Begun in 1876, this scenic square features a monument called "Weaver," which commemorates the 25th anniversary of Rome as a capital of the state, plus other important structures including the Teatro Adriano and Chiesa Valdese, built in a curious mix of Romanesque-German and Byzantine-nouveau.

In just a short walk from this Piazza, there are many great things to see in the Como village. It is a beautiful and small town, with great shops and great food.

Spent many evenings in Piazzo Cavour imbibing and visiting with family and friends. Some good bars and simple food around the edges with hotels intermixed. Glimpses of the lake and evening entertainment in the middle. One of the few taxi ranks is close by.
