Most Brit tourists will see the Paglia in Siena, but I think this, though much smaller, is every bit as charming - with the added bonus of being filled with Italians rather than tourists (excepting me, of course!!)

This Piazza was chosen for a few shots taken for La Vita é Bella, and if you liked the movie you'll love walking around the city and specially by the Piazza. It is really a charming place which will truly make you feel inside the movie.

One of the most beautiful and unique piazzas in Italy. Outside of the newer part of the city, nothing in Arezzo is flat and this piazza reflects that, it's on a severe grade north to south. The "newest" building on the piazza is the Vasari Loggia, built in the 1500s and most of the others far predate that. All of... More

The square is stunning and the atmosphere seductive. Right time of day and the tourists are out numbered by the locals and if you are really lucky you will experience local musicians practicing in the rehearsal halls on the edge of the Piazza. One word of caution, the merchants figure tourists are unaware that there are restaurants and cafes around... More

Piazza Grande is probably the highlight of our trip to Arezzo. The best spot is right in the center of the square, where one can admire the architecture of the surrounding buildings. It is a nice spot for taking photos as well. Definitely a must see when in Arezzo.
