Piazza Grande reviews
the central main square of Locarno is famous for the film festival held here, but even without festival it is always a great place to stroll accross and sit on one of the many restaurants and bars... more »
We were here on Sunday morning when things were a little quiet but this enabled us to admire the buildings fronting the piazza. more »
Wonderful place located in the center of the city of Locarno, but the problem is that is extremely quiet. It is nice from a point of view, but from another perspective... It is terrible if what you are looking for is having some fun too. The only time you can get that "fun"... Is before Christmas, when you can go there to ice skate or in August, when there are various events.
Really nice market place.
