Piazza dei Signori, Padua

4.6
Piazza dei Signori contains, among other attractions, the impressive facade of the Church of St. Clement from the late 12th century. Considered the most important plaza in Padua, this square hosted both the defeats and triumphs over the centuries of the city’s history. The clock tower designed by Giovanni Maria Falconetto and completed in 1532 still displays both the time and astronomical information. As the place where locals and those in the know meet up to have a drink, snack, or meal with a view, you can enjoy yourself just watching the people.

  • One of the most beautiful and evocative squares of Padua, it animates with the presence of stalls, many shops and places where to be able to stop to refresh itself not only in the physical but also in the mind

  • The square frames the clock tower, so you have to get close to it if you want to appreciate the tower
