This is the heart of the church area. Many shops & restaurants surround the piazza. Lovely to just stroll and browse or grab a bite to eat. Be mindful that there is traffic.

This is a nice square in front of the Basilica of saint Anthony. Lots of stalls selling souvenirs and plenty of places to eat and drink nearby.

Enjoyed the view at this Piazza before entering the church. The front of the church is so beautiful and the Statue of Gattamelata on a horse is impressive

Just people and vendors that have to be endured to enter the basilica. If you are lucky enough the crowds will be light for a good photo of the facade.

There are many better piazzas to sit in or explore or people watch. This is mostly an intersection for cars, bikes, and pedestrians. Locals don't stop here to consider Del Santo's unfinished facade, nor should you. It is just on one's way to other places.
