Reasonable size with little to see (statue and 2 fountains aside) but peaceful and important from an architectural perspective with the Annunziata church on one side and the Orphanage on another. Colonnade represents some of the Renaissance’s earliest architecture. Visit the square and look at the terracotta roundels on the orphanage facade.

This piazza appeared to be favoured by locals. Here there were two small monster fountains which were worth a photo. Not worth going out of your way for but a nice place if you are passing through.

The plaza is right behind the Academia gallery. Nothing much to see other than the fountain statue in the middle. Hotels all around and not maintained properly. Beware of the pigeons discharges on your head all around the plaza.

A small market was in progress during our visit but we made our way through to enjoy the statue of Grand Duke Ferdinand on his horse .

I quite enjoyed coming across this Piazza. Lots of happy buzz and no traffic. Not too busy with tourists and 3 nice statues to visit.
