Piazza dei Signori, Padua

4.7
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.

  • Wonderful square full of bars around. Have much to drink a wine tradition and give a chat after the tiring day of work! This is one of the ideal places in Padova. :D

  • In the evening the square is crammed with tables and becomes an open air restaurant ... of day what you notice is the clock tower which contains all zodiac signs except one (who knows why ...???) while the Scorpion appears twice as large compared to everyone else. (again you have to wonder "who knows why")

  • 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!
