  • The square is well taken care of and rich in history. Walk under the arcades, view store Windows and sit in one of the many bars and clubs overlooking the square, are small pleasures that make for a pleasant afternoon. Obviously with the Sun is anything nicer.

  • It does not matter that it was Leonardo to design or that Leonardo may have drawn inspiration for his designs. The fact remains that the Renaissance has left us a square of rare beauty and harmony, not undermined, but rather be enhanced with Baroque façade of the Cathedral from the 19th century to the early 20th century, embellished flooring When you installed the beautiful cast iron lamp-posts. To enjoy this charm there are benches to rest, but only the terraces of coffee. Comfortable, no doubt, but miserably plebeian compared to the nobility of the square.

  • Nice and big piazza in Vigevano! There are a lot of options for coffee, pastery and ice-cream
  • It's considered the poster for all medieval squares. It's high on the wow factor as long as you stay in the square. It's obvious that most of the surrounding building came hundreds of years later which had produced a sad surrounding to this authentic square. It's worth an afternoon visit but the tower view is not worth the price. Stay on the ground, have a beer or glass of wine, shop at the open air market and take in the castle. 5 stars for 'real' history but one star for the rest of the town.
  • Hystoric place with wonderful views of adajent buildings. Have a coffee in one of the restaurants, they are still reasonably priced.
  • Great place if you enjoy history.
  • Incredible museum. A must visit
