During the day this is a very quiet square affording great views of the clock tower at night the square is covered in tables and chairs from the bars and restaurants. All the tables and chairs were taken when we visited.

Just to sit here with some wine and watching the grandkids have fun and people watching was a treat! Need to go back when the stores are open to see some of the neat boutiques.

Padua is blessed with several lively and lovely squares. Thus is the third of four close together in the old city. Market during the day. Restaurants and stores galore. Historic buildings.

What seemed to be a beautiful plaza was full of vendors' stalls. Probably it was our bad luck that day as the nearby Piazza delle Erbe was filled with farmer stands too.
