Piazza dei Signori, Padua

(600+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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. Our Padua vacation builder makes visiting Piazza dei Signori and other Padua attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • One of the most beautiful squares in Padua, typical with its astrological clock. A must see.
  • Lovely square with many bars ideal for a cheap aperitif.
  • One of several piazze in a chain thru the old city. This one has a number of cafes and restaurants with nice views of the historic buildings.
  • We enjoy our little visit to Padova ,every part of Padova is cool and nice.
  • Amazing historical place in the city centre of Padova!
