Umbria and the Marches Sights

Piazza del Popolo

  • Plaza/Square/Piazza

Updated 12/05/2013

Fodor's Review

The heart of the town is the majestic Piazza del Popolo, dominated by the Gothic church of San Francesco and the Palazzo del Popolo, a 13th-century town hall that contains a graceful Renaissance courtyard. The square functions as the living room of the entire city and at dusk each evening is packed with people strolling and exchanging news and gossip—the sweetly antiquated ritual called the passeggiata, performed all over the country.
