Piazza Duomo

Trento’s heart is this busy yet intimate piazza, dominated, of course, by the duomo, but also host to the Fontana di Nettuno, a flashy late-baroque fountain rather whimsically dedicated to Neptune. Don’t miss the intricate, allegorical frescoes that fill the 16th-century facades of the Casa Cazzuffirella, on the piazza’s northern side.
