The thing that’s interesting about this piazza is that you can stand in the middle and see seven different churches surrounding you. It’s in a sort of quieter corner of the Centro Storico so its doesn’t have the bustling energy of the Piazza Maggiore, but...More

Piazza Santo Stefano is very beautiful, like something you would expect to see in an old italian movie. Its quite small and quiet, with beautiful architecture and gorgeous cobble stones. A perfect place to have a sit and rest and socialise with the locals.

This is a peaceful square just a few minute's walk to the East of the main square of Piazza Maggiore. Surrounded by attractive buildings with porticos, there are a few little restaurants and bars here. The main attraction is the 'Seven Churches' cluster of interconnected...More

This is an intimate piazza where everyone gathers to socialize. It was so peaceful and tranquil on the day that we were there. The square is often used for cultural events, flea-markets, and concerts. There are porticos along both sides of the square. The Basilica...More

We were staying just round the corner so walked through this piazza most days. The church is lovely. The square was set up with a stage and seating when we were there, as part of a "Biografilm" festival.

As the name suggests, there were once seven churches. It seemed a pleasant triangular piazza, made rather more jolly with the art school who were studiously at work on their easels.

What more to ask? This piazza has a beautiful church. The piazza itself is special surrounded by good restaurants and by night and by day it is great people watching. And in the second weekend of the month we were surprised by the best antique...More

Just out of the city centre but a world away from the hustle and bustle, this is a lovely cobbled square (well, more of a triangle really!) surrounded by some fascinating buildings. From the early constructions of the "Seven Churches" to the Gothic and late...More

Lovely place to relax with freinds eating lunch and enjoying a glass of wine. The negatives are there are lots of beggars about 1 every 5 min some of them looked very well dressed.

Wonderful quiet square (relatively) where you can sit and enjoy a teaching aperitivo away from all the masses of tourist. Definitely worth the visit
