This is on the edge of the old town area, and has outdoor restaurants and gelato. The water station (yes it is intended for drinking) was a life-saver for filling my bottle on a hot day.

This is a square in the old part of town, near old and beautiful attractions but also a place to eat delicious food. It's a must to cross by at least.

Here you will find a lot of terraces and restaurants. Be careful that in the evening, restaurants open only after 19.30, so if you are looking for an early dinner, you might have problems getting a place willing to serve you. The architecture is nice,...More

This Piazza is definitely lively. It's a popular spot during the day for lunch or drinks, and at night it comes to life with buskers, street musicians. Generally great for people watching. Great vibe.

Not a very large square, but interesting all the same. Don't forget to look for the historic "Pillar of Shame" in one corner, where bad debtors were humiliated in public.
