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.

  • Truly amazing this beautiful square, appearing before my eyes almost by chance, strolling through the alleys. Made almost entirely of travertine, has the characteristic color of the stone and overlook many historic buildings. Beautiful art nouveau coffee. This square alone is worth the visit of the city, which is stunning throughout.

  • Luckily we're in Italy and the merit of medieval, Renaissance, baroque squares, etc. we scattered almost everywhere. Piazza del Popolo di Ascoli Piceno is nice but not the most beautiful in Italy. It is useless to make the list of our other beautiful squares. Anyway I recommend, in fact I'm going back as well. Italian art throughout Italy.
