We stayed in Arezzo for just over a week, and loved being able to walk around the city. It is both ancient, with old walls and gates, as well as modern with plenty of department stores and other places to shop. Restaurants abound, and we love being able to participate in the Passeggiata each evening before dinner. We typically began... More

Arrezo is a beatiful idyllic town with a very attractive and lively historical center. The main attraction is the Piazza Grande (Grand Square) the ressembles quite closely Siena's Piazza del Campo and it's close to the Duomo and the medieval fort. You can enjoy it best by sipping a coffee or dinning at the restaurants facing the square under the... More

When I went the piazza grande was quiet... Which was perfect opportunity to go and read all about what goes on there. Old style horse battles take place at certain point in the year... But is a beautiful place to go walk around and have a coffee after walking up to it. Has the typical Italian feel in this Tuscan... More

This place could not be more medieval, transporting you back in time with banners draped from the buildings and a large well near the centre. A fantastic place to transport you back in time! Our second visit here.

Do you remember the Oscar awarded movie "Life is beautiful" ? This square takes you back into the past, into the history, into the arts of Italian grandeur

The Piazza Grande is an amazing space unlike other piazzas we explored in Italy. The main square slopes steeply and is surrounded by the galleried apse of Santa Maria Della Pieve parish church, the 16 th century logge designed by Vasari, 8th century law courts, and the Gothic/Renaissance Palazzo Della Fraternita. Under Vasari' s gallery are lovely cafés perfect for... More
