Just to sit here with some wine and watching the grandkids have fun and people watching was a treat! Need to go back when the stores are open to see some of the neat boutiques.

Padua is blessed with several lively and lovely squares. Thus is the third of four close together in the old city. Market during the day. Restaurants and stores galore. Historic buildings.

What seemed to be a beautiful plaza was full of vendors' stalls. Probably it was our bad luck that day as the nearby Piazza delle Erbe was filled with farmer stands too.

Like most buildings in Italy this square too has buildings full of historical value. The clock tower has an unusual clock, well maintained & full of history. Be cautious of pickpockets & con artists at all times as advised by our tour guides. Well worth...More

Beautiful square, dominated by the clock tower, slap bang in the centre a stone's throw from Piazza della Frutta and Piazza delle Erbe. Many bars, restaurants and ice-cream places.

Simply wonderful historic clock tower is beautiful condition. I spent several hours in square listening to an amazingly good street band playing classic rock. Ate in a restaurant @ square and it was quite good. This whole spot had a wonderful ambience.

One of Padua's gems. It is very nice in late afternoon light. Definitely a great place to sit and have a drink and just relax in nice weather.

A lot of people, a lot of food and a large selection of cheap clothes particularly on Saturday. Some open good restaurants and food shops
