I was hoping to do a general review of the city but that doesn't seem possible. We were very disappointed with our visit as there are few signs indicating the location of any of the main attractions, and we were unable to find the tourist office (Why can't there be a tourist information point near the lift up from the main carpark?)
After an hour or do of wandering aimlessly we gave up and moved on.

Beautiful square in the heart of charming Macerata
May 2018 • Couples
The square boasts several historical buildings, such as the Civic Tower, Teatro Lauro Rossi, the Loggia dei Mercanti and university buildings. We were able to witness the carousel with the automatons of the Magi and the angel which bend down while passing in front of a statue of the Virgin and Child at the clock tower.
We returned at night to fund the square bustling with activity, given the number of cafes and bars in the vicinity, and the large student population. Macerata was packed to the rafters that night due to an ongoing European food festival.

Amazing square in city center
Feb 2018 • Solo
The old city center of Macerata is very beautiful and I think this square is a good example of this beauty. In springtime I love to spend time is some bar of the square with friends to drink coffee or some wines

Center of Macerata, historical and also alive!
Jul 2016 • Solo
This square is the heart of historical Macerata. It is quite small and cozy but in this square you find several historical buildings, such as the Civic Tower, Lauro Rossi Theater, the Loggia dei Mercanti, several university buildings, the Palazzo dei Gobierni.
From the square you can also see the unique walk of the 3 wise men in front of the Holy Virgin in the clock tower at 12h and at 18h.
In the square you can also find several coffee and ice cream shops, which makes it by night a gathering point for lots of people, namely the students of the university.
In some days, you will also find several vans selling all kind of articles, but not for tourists, for locals... it's market day!
Overall, the place is quite nice and has only a week point, too many cars parked in the square, sometimes even the police cars of local precinct, as you can see in the photos. And it gets too confusing and not so pretty as it could be...
Still, the place is alive, it is not a mere tourist site, is a place full of live and people, lots of university students and a good place to have a coffee or an ice cream in one of the friendly places that exist there. Enjoy!

An attractive and dynamic piazza
May 2016 • Friends
I enjoyed being in this piazza. Something seemed to be going on all the time - movement in and out of shops, deliveries, people coming out of the theater, the entrance of which is on the piazza, the animated clock doing is thing at noon, people having coffee in the sunshine, tourists like me taking pictures, etc.

The heart of the city witha a wonderful watch
Sep 2015 • Solo
Piazza della Libertà is the center of Macerata city. There are many beautiful buildings to see. The teater "Lauro Rossi" a wonderful place for music and dramas. The clock tower with two beautiful watches, one from 18th century and the other one from Reinassence that was recentrly restored. There is a unique (in the world) engine and a planetarium. you can go to the top of the tower and se an amazing view over the city and the countriside (you have to pay the ticket, should be 2 euros but you can buy a full ticket for all city attractions). That is the highest place in the city. On the side of the tower there is Le scalette, a very old and tipical stairway, very hard to climb. The strange shape of the stairs is thinked to help horse wagons to reach the top. Continuing there is the major house, with some epigraph in the court and Palazzo dei Priori building. That is also very old with a beautiful ceremony hall (you cannot visit it unless you take some special passes). At the corner there is the Loggia dei Mercanti, a place where, in the middle ages, farmers use to excange goods. You can find a very special chocolate shop, a good bar, a tea room, and a vegan restaurant that is also very tasty. So if you can look around in the proper way you can find many interesting places.
