One side of the piazza was completely covered up and in the middle of it there was a crew working fast to erect some kind of temporary construction. The works detracted from the charm of the busy piazza.

We sat on benches and ate piadini and gelato here several times during our 3-day visit to Ravenna. We also had snacks at one of the cafes one afternoon. We found the piazza to be peaceful and quiet at times and very active at other...More

Aside to other feelings during a visit in Ravenna's heart, I loved admiring proportions of the place and to observe the line of the roofs from one building to its neighbors. Probably Ravenna has the highest number of bookstores around Piazza del Popolo.

Lovely place to eat and watch the world go by, we enjoyed an excellent pasta lunch, coffee and drinks on two different stops on our trip to Ravenna by train from Rimini, one hour and only 12 Euros return, easy to walk around city centre

This is a pretty ordinary piazza but if you are after a light lunch while watching the passing parade then one of the restaurants in the piazza would be ideal
