This apparently is the largest share in Lucca, and is often used for celebrations and concerts, It is not as charming as some of the smaller squares but it does have restaurants and small shops

Visited the piazza for the second time to checkout Lenny K. Show was great and the venue was great. Buildings all around make the concert quite intimate, even with hundreds of people.
