Except for its well known market, the town of Domodossola in the Italian Alps never shows up as an attraction in itself. This is wrong. Its old center, mostly pedestrianized now, is really worth a visit and best an overnight stay. There are several charming...More

Went on a day trip as my daughter wanted to get some time in Italy. She was looking for something to remind her of Verona and a quick trip here did the trick

I think this place is super incredible; It feels like from an Alphine movie, where you can scroll around and sit on the nice Piazza, looking towards the great surroundings. Especially great when in the winter, Magic expierence

A bustling heart of the old town, some lovely architecture and, in the mornings, local produce stalls. Great coffee places

Spent the day in Domodossola and really enjoyed the Piazza. Happened upon the outdoor market and picked up some fruit and cheese, very reasonable. Wonderful large bookstore with very helpful staff.

A picturesque piazza.It is cool to think it was used to host trade fairs since the Middle Ages, uniting people from all over Mitteleuropa and the Italian Peninsula. Many bars and restaurants around it, where to have aperitivo or taste the local cheeses and salumi.

We arrived late in the evening on a Friday on our way to Milano and were amazed to see how busy the square became - the later in the evening, the more people (mostly young) at different restaurants in the square. Next morning, a Saturday,...More

The piazza is at the centre of the mediaeval part of Domodossola. Many of the buildings started life in the 14th century but have been added to or "modernised" in later centuries. Let's not get too techincal - just sit outside one of the bars...More

There is not much to see or do here. Maybe this is due to the saison. There is no choice of restaurants and shops are closed in the lunch hours till 3PM. It is a quiet square, but picturesque. I understandthat market days are busier!

...what all the fuss is about. Yes, this is an Italian square with cafes and coffee shops. There is people watching involved, but I wouldn't say this is a "must do" or something unique to Domodossola.

When in Domodossola, take time to visit this square, have a coffe or, on market day, mooch around like a local would. Take time to stroll along via Briona to one of the caffe (bars as the Italian call them)
