Very busy street. Watch out for tourist traps! Lots of interesting shops. It offers a pleasant walk but it can get very hot during the day; it's more pleasant in the evening.

Took the tram up from Isola Bella every evening to walk around and shop and eat. This piazza was so full of life and music and food and views. A must see and great place to hang out with wine or gelato.
