Former medieval central square of the town with the source of water transformed into the attractive area with fountain and columns of glory, surrounded by stately houses built during Renaissance and Classicism. On weekends it is a big market place where local goods and souvenirs are on sale

Quieter and under construction with white construction tarps covering the buildings. It is also called Piazza Dante. All the buildings are linked by arches. The whale rib hangs from one of the arches. There is a statue of Dante and and connects to Palazzo della Ragione and the Torre dei Lamberti. It was very low key during our visit. We... More

We passed through the Arco della Costa, heading from Piazza delle Erbe to Pizza dei Signori, to look at the beautiful old buildings for which this square is known (architecturally and historically). Instead, we came upon a huge Christmas market and could barely see beyond the myriad stalls and throngs of people. I had to edge my way to the... More

I say well hidden because all the tourist maps say its there but I eventually found it, and there was a Christmas market going on, and the buildings around it are beautiful - well worth a visit.

Beautiful piazza, buildings are very nice. It was fairly crowded, as Christmas market had been set up here. Be sure to look for the "whalebone"

Another hidden gem surrounded by stylish buildings and high end restaurants. A perfect place off the main tourist areas to enjoy.

A pretty square with a large statue of Dante in the centre. (Hence it's also called Piazza Dante) There is also the hanging whale rib which is said to fall on the first person who's never lied!) but it's currently hidden behind some scaffolding (tastefully done). Lots of nice buildings to admire, too.

Here (nearby) you find the entrance to the torri dei Lamberti. It's a smaller piazza (in comparing to piazza delle erbe and piazza bra) and it seems it would be more quiet but we made a citytour at sunday 30/10/16 and at that time there was a market and free food (free gift) so we can 't really say. It... More
