A great example of gorgeous architecture in the square: It would be hard not to notice an array of Venetian-style buildings dominated by the Palazzo Della Loggia. The square is quite popular and is always included in the tours and itinerary. The square has been of great historical relevance, but it also has some interesting buildings, restaurants and cafes too.
