Piazza delle Erbe

Recommended
This oblong square, very lively and colourful on market days, is lined in historic palaces and houses, some of which still boast their original marble columns and frescoes. Running down the middle are the market column, 16C "Capitello" or "Tribuna" where decrees and sentences were proclaimed, the fountain of Madonna Verona topped by a roman statue personifying the town and the column of St Mark (1523) bearing Venice's winged lion.
