Piazza dei Signori is the lively central square, lined with cafès. It is the classic Italian piazza, where people use to stroll around or sit outdoor at a bar table sipping a coffee, a glass of Prosecco wine or a spritz, pecking at the typical Venetian’s finger food, the so-called cicchetti, looking at people passing by...they say it is the Italians’ favourite passtime, isn’it?
Piazza dei Signori - at afternoon it's sleepy place (siesta?) with very few visitors. Originally being a Roman Forum, Piazza still used for festivals. There are few points of interest: two columns dating from the Venetian period, the slender Torre di Piazza -82m/271ft, built in 1174 and Basilica Palladiana.
