There is no way you could guess, looking at this spot teeming with delicious places to eat, that you’re looking at what is very, very likely the most historic continuously in use public square in the city? How historic? 2500 years old should be a safe guess. It’s known the Romans held their ‘agora’, their public market here and watched to goings on of the port. But it’s very probable that the Greeks were doing that long before the Romans’ appeared. The name of the square though comes from a 16th century corsican family. There are a lot of cafes here, and lots of umbrella shaded tables to sit at and watch the world go by. The place has not changed much in these millenia. Try the homemade ice-cream.
