Enjoyed the view at this Piazza before entering the church. The front of the church is so beautiful and the Statue of Gattamelata on a horse is impressive

There are many better piazzas to sit in or explore or people watch. This is mostly an intersection for cars, bikes, and pedestrians. Locals don't stop here to consider Del Santo's unfinished facade, nor should you. It is just on one's way to other places.

The Saint Antoine's church is probably one of the most attractive and beautiful churches in Italy. It's style is a typical mixture of romanic, plus some hints of gothic here and there. Completely different from Milan gothic Dome, just to say, but the same huge...More

The square is a simple space, surrounding a majestic structure. Patronize one of the cafés or pastry shops or visit the souvenir shops on the periphery. The taxi stand is on the East side. The piazza can be reached from four different directions. Dozens of...More
