This is an elegant and charming town square. I went on an afternoon in autumn and enjoyed a coffee outside a cafe. The trees had begun to shed their leaves, the atmosphere was one of fading gentility. But charming nevertheless.

This little square in the heart of the city is a place where you will find most of the best bar where locals go for aperitivo from 7pm to late night time

Around the piazza you can see some old palaces and many coffee houses, restaurants. Each Saturday farmers from the countryside sell their own products here. In the evenings the place is full of families and youngs enjoying going out.
