Walked around the Piazza and then through the castle which is practically attached. This piazza is full of interesting coffee shops and restaurants.

Great place to visit. A must do in the area. You can easily walk around in the pedestrian area and than visit also the Castle.

An amazing square and very unusual. With beautiful painted walls. It was so busy I felt it was spoiled really. Cafes were heaving and we ordered water and cakes but they were so long coming we left without them. Not a relaxing place to sit.
