Piazza del Popolo, Ascoli Piceno
(4.7/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • One of the most beautiful squares in Europe. Originally the city's noble place, surrounded by important buildings and charming cafes. Worth the visit. If it's late in the afternoon, enjoy, feel at one of the cafés around the square and enjoy the view and the climate. The streets are small and do not pass cars, only pedestrians and cyclists. Place is a meeting point for young people, families, couples. Delicious!
