  • The Piazza Ducale, with adjoining the Tower of Bramante and the Castle, eventually restored about fifteen years ago after long periods of use "improper" and carelessness, represents a unique treasure not only for Vigevano, but throughout Italy. The square, in particular, miracle of harmony between the 3 sides of the fifteenth-century portico and the façade of the Cathedral, in a completely different style, for me remains one of the most beautiful Italian cities 4-5, along with Saint Mark's square, St Peter's square and Piazza del Campo. See in particular at night, while by day a tour of the gardens and the Castle Rider is a must

  • I believe-no exaggeration-it's one of the most beautiful squares in the world. The square, rectangular, is surrounded by arcades with arches, and is a true spectacle. Is a little more than half an hour from the Centre of Milan. Definitely worth a visit. Parking lot adjacent to and through a walk to down town you enter the beautiful square.

  • Piazza Ducale is often referenced as one of the most beautiful squares of Europe. It is a main meeting point for the city and a place of great historical value. Torre del Bramante is the clock tower and can be visited to get a great view of the whole city.
  • One of prettiest place in Europe, full of history and atmosphere
  • Beauty and history packed into a large square, defined by many living in Italy. To visit, with access from the square, the sforzesco Castle, the torre del Bramante.

  • Third most beautiful square in Europe, shame about the trade in decline: there is so many people how much there was.
