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.

  • Not great square and without special decorations or Fountains but some are worth the surrounding buildings.

  • One of the most important places in padova, I spend a lot of time there when I was student in the University of the city. This is the place where the students meet and get fun. There is bars and restaurants around it, you can find also stairs and benches for seating down, believe me if I tell you this is the most important place in Padova.
  • The most elegant square in Padua. It’s very nice having a spritz seating in one of the table on the square. It’s full of shops and restaurants around.
  • My favorite place in Padova, always very active, either with the market every morning, or the bar/restaurants for lunch and dinner.
  • Great place to chill, have a drink and watch the world go by
  • Charming square with pleasant sights at night and day in the very central heart of Padova!
