When visiting Assisi the roads take you to the Piazza del Comune. The is the centre of Assisi. Where they hold events and other community activities. There are bars and restaurants that you can sit on a nice day and just people watch.

Superb piazza really busy with people and interesting. Many small cafes and shops nearby to the Roman columns. Well worth resting here awhile.

It was quite lovely. It had great medieval "feel" We discovered later that it's considered one of the best preserved piazzas in the country. The remnants of the original Roman forum ruins lie beneath this piazza. Lots of great shops nearby!

We had been to Rome and Florence, not to mention Assisi, so we had visited some splendid piazzas. By comparison, Montefalco’s was nothing special. We did enjoy the hike up to the hilltop village. We had an outdoor lunch with the super local wine—and great views of the valley below. It’s always a pleasure to visit these quaint old villages.

After all the years of visiting we had never been up here and it was so very worth it. There are lots of things to see once you arrive.

This piazza is gorgeous! I just love taking pictures and looking at the marvelous fountain smack in the middle of the square. It is really the middle of Assisi, and the perfect destination to have coffee and look out into the town. You can basically see everything from Piazza Del Comune. I recommend it!

One of the main piazze in Assisi and definitely one worth spending time in! Especially since it's uphill, after your walk there, sit at one of the bars, grab a drink, and enjoy the view!

This is centre of town, and what a beautiful town, no parking but restaurants, bars, shops galore and stunning architecture of all structures, not just religious building of which there are many.

Everything happens here or close to this place. Probably for the past 800+ years. But not to mean anything far from this place is no good. The place to see and be seen, if you'd like to put it that way. The basilica of San Francesco is a good 10-15 minute walk; while the Chiesa of Santa Chiara/St Clair is... More

In a town packed with tourists, the piazza del comune stands out as being somewhat quieter than one would expect - perfect to enjoy a granita al limone or some other refreshing treat - quite a good way to enjoy a break while visiting Assisi
