This very beautiful Square was built on the site of the Roman Anphytheater which makes it unique! The entrances are the original ones, but instead of finding the arena and the steps to sit on, you find a cobbled Square with buildings built all around it! Well worth the visit!

Lovely place to sit at one of the restaurants with a glass of wine in the sun, pick from anyone of the restaurants and the service is good

Although our visit was in the winter there were still a couple of places open to enjoy a coffee and watch the world go by.

During the summer this is 'the' place to be overcharged for underwhelming food, and browse the half-dozen or so cheap tourist shops all selling the same thing. Walking through once is enough. If you are lucky you may stumble across a photo of the anfiteatro in olden times when it was filled with food vendors and not plush apartments overlooking the piazza and over-priced tourist resturants.
