This is the heart of the church area. Many shops & restaurants surround the piazza. Lovely to just stroll and browse or grab a bite to eat. Be mindful that there is traffic.

Enjoyed the view at this Piazza before entering the church. The front of the church is so beautiful and the Statue of Gattamelata on a horse is impressive
