  • Wonderful expansive square. Naples is a goldmine of beautiful buildings and interesting places - not to mention the glorious bay overlooked by Vesuvius. A magical place to visit. 
  • It is from Piazza Plebiscito you could guide you to a tour of Naples, teatro San Carlo, via Toledo, the old town, New Castle and via Chiaia are nearby. The famous caffè Gambrinus, Professor coffee, Pappa of sfogliatelle, Sorbillo (fried pizza) for picky eaters ...

  • They have Neapolitans if you explore the whole square and get pass between the 2 statues of horses with your eyes closed you'll have luck throughout the year. I got. Very nice place and if you have a little view of the Neapolitan coast and you'll see Vesuvius in the background.

  • The piazza is probably one of the grander things to see in Naples, with lots of room for photos with the imposing colonnades behind. To the side has a terraced road with views of Vesuvius which look quite good at sunset. It's also metres from the main shopping street in Naples, with well known brands and chains, as well as places for refreshments.
  • An inspiring site to visit. The piazza is very large and you can imagine the grandeur of the events held here in the time of the royal family. There are still events today that use the Piazza and the lighting/staging makes it just as dramatic.
  • Reminds me of St Peters cathedral. A very big square so it's hard to spot the shops. Looks more like a fire drill assembly point for the town, rather than a lively piazza
  • Gorgeous architecture and design. Worth the visit to see inside the open dome.
  • Great event every year in october in piazza del plebiscito a classical concert with 21 pianos
