I'm afraid I must disagree with most British reviewers and go along with some of my Italian friends when I say that this is a pretty poor effort of a Piazza. There is no doubt that Spello is an attractive town with lots of old...More

Like all the piazza's in Perugia, the Piazza della Repubblica always seems to have something going on. From market stalls to merry-go-rounds. It's a great place to have a coffee or glass of wine at one of the local cafes and just sit.

The main square, but also all the little medieval alleys leading up through the town are well worth a visit. We have now been there several time, showing guests around, and are never tired of it.... although the steep streets ARE somewhat tiring, admittedly.

We visited several perched villages throughout Umbria and loved every single one for various reasons. Spello was the most laid back and least crowded. In this piazza, many locals appeared to be relaxing in the shade of trees, and we found a little park around...More

We spent a charming time walking around in this well preserved medieval village and getting the feel of what could have been (and still is) life there.

This is the main Piazza of Cortona and is the 5th most popular in all of Italy for weddings. Not uncommon to sit and watch a couple in one day and the festivities that go with it. You can simply sit in the square, even...More

My husband and I visited Cortona in October 2009 and we were left speechless as we wandered around this fascinating medieval town just on dusk and then again after partaking of a delicious meal at Ristorante Il Cacciatore just down the street . The Piazza...More
