The Piazza delle Erbe is in the centre of the historic city centre, and occupies the site of the old Roman Forum. This long, elliptical piazza is lined with historic buildings, amongst which are th Casa Mazzanti, the Palazzo Maffei, the Palazzo Comune and of course the Torre dei Lambertii, to mention but a few.

Along the square there are several monuments and a fountain assembled from Roman parts of different ages. The piazza also houses a market during the day, which successfully detracts from the beauty of the square. In the evening, the market folds itself away into its stalls, and the Piazza becomes a pleasant place to sit and have a drink before dinner in one of the cafes lining the north side.
