Piazza del Popolo, Ascoli Piceno

Piazza del Popolo was once a gateway to Rome for travelers from the north and a nexus of one of the ancient empire's most important roads. Today, you can admire the Neoclassical plaza's 24 m (78.7 ft) Egyptian obelisk, cupolas, and archways. The fountains were designed in the first half of the 19th century. Visit the churches of Santa Maria Montesanto, Santa Maria dei Miracoli, and Santa Maria del Popolo. The latter is built upon Roman Emperor Nero's resting place.

  • lovely, in a city full of squares and churches, perhaps this is the most beautiful, to pass and see

  • I've been to Ascoli for work a week: there had never been before and the surprise was really great! The town centre is a perfectly preserved piece of the middle ages, far from well known destinations in Central Italy, but of historical and artistic interest, without really nothing to envy to other similar places. Everything is very clean and efficient and of course the beautiful Piazza del Popolo, isn't living in the city, is the most significant "gem": completely paved with polished marble, is surrounded by medieval buildings and the renowned "workshops". Must see, not without having previously bought a good foil to the famous stuffed olives!
