The beautiful square with a nice view at the city’s countryside is located just behind the Palazzo Pubblico. Its main feature is a central loggia called “Tartarugone” (which means “Big Turtle”, the former headquarters of the market). You can enjoy the view on the whole valley from here, which is truly remarkable!

A few remote restaurants out of the way from tourist. A beautiful view of the country side and public toilets at the bottom. A great area for a picnic of wine and pizza and a lot cheaper and more peaceful that the tour group restaurants!
