A great place to shop in the flea market in the morning and a better place to enjoy a light meal or drink in the evening. Grab one of the locals to tell you the whole story of the clock tower. It is very interesting and symbolic. Nice views all around.

It is one of the most known place in the city to meet friend for a Spritz in town. There are also a couple of restaurants with tables on the square to enjoy the view in summertime. You must go there if you pass by.

One of several piazze in a chain thru the old city. This one has a number of cafes and restaurants with nice views of the historic buildings.

In the centre, so why not just walk around and spend the extra minutes. Great little shops around to have a snack.

This Renaissance piazza presents an elegant face - very lacy loggia line the piazza. It has many benches and is an ideal spot for people watching as well. At one end there is an elaborate astrological clock.

During the day, a typical market place with its stalls where locals go shop for grocery. In the evening in turn, the whole marketplace is equipped with cafe/restaurant tables, a true evening food celebration. Good restaurants available - you will leave this place with full stomach and a smiling face!

The center of the plaza is a building with a beautiful clock. There are shops and cafes all around the plaza. A great place to have an evening drink

A beautiful Piazza in the heart of Padova, buzzing with coffee shops and restaurants. It houses the most exquisite clock tower built after the Venetians conquered Padova as a symbol of power and status. You can get a tour inside the clock to see the ancient but still operational workings of a medieval clock.

We visited this Piazza during our recent tour of Italy. This was one of the largest Piazzas we saw on the tour. We were there on a Friday night, and it was completely taken over by the surrounding restaurants. The place was buzzing with people enjoying a meal and each other's company. There is one small fountain in one corner.... More

In this square you will find the big astrological clock on the white tower of Palazzo del Capitanio. Also you have the markets that are held in this square as well as the Piazza delle Erbe. Also in the Piazza dei Signori are many attractive small speciality shops and cafes. Most attractions are well sign posted for pedestrians in Padua.
