Together with the 12th-century cathedral and soaring tower, Piazza Grande is the heart of Modena. This cobblestone-covered square, one of the oldest in Italy, is a meeting-point for locals. Covered arcades line the length of the square, offering many cafes, bars, and restaurants, and a tourist office. If you're interested in people-watching, this is a prime place to do it, as it seems always to be bustling with locals on nightly walks, or passegiatas.
