  • An iconic place to visit. In the heart of the city centre. Close to the Cathedral and the rest of the temples in the area and many historic buildings. Ideal for couple or family.

  • A must to visit! Nice fountain. A lot of people.
  • It could be better without cars
  • Iconic fountain and statues in a very busy corner, best seen on Sunday when you can ride bikes freely downtown
  • You can kill 2 birds with 1 stone but visiting here and the aqueduct. It's a 15-20 minute walk from cathedral.
  • 👌
