  • The living room of this magic city center. Be there and go with the flow. It cannot be better. Definitely one of the most magnificent squares, only rivaled by the great Italian examples. Pure pleasure.
  • Loved it. A nice easy walk with parking nearby, lots of places to eat and different food to choose from. We had a nice coffee in the morning, walked to the river and back again for lunch at the plaza. Perfect.
