This piazza dates to at least 1200 and is very impressive. The cathedral is at one end but all the buildings are worth a view - including the old cafe/Gelateria at one end - a great way to view the piazza

THE place for people watching, caffe, olive ascolane, drinks, historic views. And it's free! Bordered on the north by St. Francisco Church, on the east and south by shops and restaurants, on the west by the Palazzo del Capitani (and by Melitti Coffee).

Wonderful square in the centre of this lovely town. There are magnificent buildings all around. And there are nice cafes where you can sit in a shade and take your cup of Italian espresso.
