A little square full of locals, a nice quiet place just in the middle of the old city. Cofee is expensive there but the sinshine and views are great

When everything is closed on Sunday, this place is the best place to find a hot chocolate and to people watch.

We went to the centre of the old town, which gave us a look at the architecture of the time. We were also there today when the L'Escalade was on with the enactment of the 1602 defeat of the Duke of Savoy in the square...More
