We sat on a bench here to take a break and people watch here. There were some shops and restaurants on the plaza that were filled with people, but mostly people were just hanging out in the area. There was a pretty fountain. We even saw a couple posing for their wedding pictures.

A nice piazza centrally located in Assisi that is lined with many shops and restaurants, along with the Temple of Minerva and the Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo. In the center of the square is a fountain that during our visit was not operating. This is a great place to sit and just people watch or to shop in one... More

The square is a great place to sit and take a break but do not look for food here, there is nothing of quality. You are better to search for food in the new town or on the outskirts of the old town. Sit on the steps or limited benches and just bask in the Assisi sunlight.

This is the area in the heart of the town, can't really avoid visiting here if you explore Assisi. It's a nice square and has a unique sign depicting no picnicking on the stairs here.....so, you can sit, just not eat.....lol.

This is the mais square of Assisi! Assisi is a place that a person must be at least once in a lifetime! It is really beautiful the medieval city, with such a wonderful atmosphere! Just walk around and enjoy! Have a coffee at Piazza del Comune, and breath this 12th century's air! The Comune, the fountain, the museum, the Minerva... More

Fabulous spot for eating gelato, drinking coffee and sitting in the sun as you people watch. Soak in the relaxed atmosphere of Assisi.

When visiting Assisi the roads take you to the Piazza del Comune. The is the centre of Assisi. Where they hold events and other community activities. There are bars and restaurants that you can sit on a nice day and just people watch.

Superb piazza really busy with people and interesting. Many small cafes and shops nearby to the Roman columns. Well worth resting here awhile.

It was quite lovely. It had great medieval "feel" We discovered later that it's considered one of the best preserved piazzas in the country. The remnants of the original Roman forum ruins lie beneath this piazza. Lots of great shops nearby!

We had been to Rome and Florence, not to mention Assisi, so we had visited some splendid piazzas. By comparison, Montefalco’s was nothing special. We did enjoy the hike up to the hilltop village. We had an outdoor lunch with the super local wine—and great views of the valley below. It’s always a pleasure to visit these quaint old villages.
