Fantastic to just stroll through across the square absorbing the magnificent old buildings and locals grabbing coffee - certainly stroll of the back left corner along the back streets and laneways - hopefully in good weather

This Piazza is wonderful. Vast; facing the sea; surrounded by wonderful buildings. Michelin starred restaurant on one side, cafes on the other. Certainly the centre of the city and wonderful either by Italian standards.
