It is hard not to pass by this magnificent statue if you go near the Duomo. I wish that there were places to sit. Impressive, especially the way it sits alone in the middle of the Duomo Piazza.

Beautiful monument but the pigeons spoil it ! Nearly stand on them there’s so many! However the equestrian statue is worth a look. Bustling area with lots of people and traders selling selfie sticks which are a bit annoying!

Sitting at an outdoor table at Coffeejoint12oz (where you get a good-sized cappuccino for €2.50) and watching the world go by looking at this impressive monument. Nice way to fill in time on a glorious spring day while wife shops
