This is one of the main squares in Mantova and, with its cafes and bars, provides a good place to stop for a drink or a bite. It's very close to the many of the major sites.

Bellissima piazza in una cita non tanto conosciuta. It is a meeting point because of restaurants and bars but also stores there are all around. In the middle there is this big cathedral that reminds us of Rotonda. It is one of the highlights of...More

Very crowded with restaurants, caffes and live music. A lot of action including small temporary markents and art presentations. Beautiful, well preserved buildings around a large square.

It is a lovely space between the Basilica and the clock tower but much is covered by scaffolding right now.

Tourists writing here will tell you that this is a great place to shop, eat, and take photographs. I live in Mantua, so my perspective is a bit more jaded. You'll inevitably walk here between the rotonda, clock tower, basiica etc. In my experience the...More
