You will probably pass thru it several times as you walk around the old city, but as a destination, it is nothing special. It offers good views of the Duomo and other buildings.

When you visit this city, this is a place you have to go. It's a great area to see and I would say the "central hub" of the city. It was just enjoyable to sit and watch people and visit the local shops and sights....More
