Your Favroite Public Squares?

Jump to last reply

Europe is known for its many large neat town squares.

which ones are your favroites?

I'll start with:

Trafalgar Square, London - something about Nelson's column that makes it magic as does the National Gallery on its north end and great for people watching

Place de la Concord - Paris - I love to sit on a park bench in the Tuileries Gardens high above the square and just watch the never-ending traffick scoot thru the huge square - with the Elysee Palace on its north side and the many monuments surrounding it.

Belgium - just about any square in any town - with the ubiquitous soaring belfry - Bruges and Brussels Grand' Place are sublime examples.

Rome - Piazza Navona to me is one of Europe's sweetest squares - especially with Bernini's famous fountain now once again spitting water.

The Vatican - the square in the front with its curving collonades is so so majestic.

Venice - St Mark's square - though more a rectangle to me is simply the most majestic, most gorgeous square in Europe - especially at night when the many 'orchestras' are playing at outdoor caffes.

Florence - the square in front of the Uffizi, with its clone of the David statue and backgropped by ancient buildings is so so romantic.

Siena, Italy's simply sprawling main square in front of the multi-hued Duomo is one of my very favorites.

Marienplatz, Munich - so-so square architecturally but so so animated when the figures on the huge clock do their dance at certain hours.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SQUARES?
