Overview

The square found at the end of Via Po is rectangular in shape, with similar-looking palazzi on three sides and a fourth looking onto the River Po. The square was designed and built between 1825 and 1830 in the place where the 17th century Porta di Po by Guarini once stood. The square stands out for one main reason: it is one of the largest European 'terra battuta' squares, (this means there is no paving or cobblestones). Although the buildings seem to be on the same level, the road actually descends down to the river. Besides the square's beauty, Piazza Vittorio Veneto is also a great place to shop. There are a lot of stores in the area, such as Bertolini & Borse and Rider's Shop.
