The piazza itself is beautiful...sit at one of the outdoor cafes and sip an espresso...watch the people and activity during the Antique Faire. Amazing finds...

A good place to relax and have a coffee in one of the many restaurants housed in the Loggia designed by Vasari. You can also see the Astronomical clock on the Palazzo della Fraternità dei Laici which can be visited.

An squared-shape piazza with houses of stone-carved facades. There is also an antique dwell with a wooden roof. In summer, most houses have banners.

This is one of the great piazzas of Italy. In a way it is similar to the most famous Piazza del Campo in Siena but with far less tourists and commercial activities. It is circled by majestic palazzi and churches and, reflecting that Arezzo is built on a steep hill, the square has a slope. A couple of times each... More

This piazza exceeded my expectations. As a recent reviewer commented, it can easily compete with piazzas in Florence. The buildings are magnificent. We visited on a Saturday and witnessed the wonderful antiques market. We love the film 'Life is Beautiful' and it was great to see where it was filmed in the flesh.

Not as touristy as Siena's square, has a really special feeling. We recognised it from the scenes of "life is beautiful" by Benigni. If Arezzo is on your way do not miss - even for half a day

We loved Arezzo with it's hustle and bustle. The fantastic sights in the old city are in such contrast to the business center of the city. It was our favorite city in Tuscany and we wished we could have spent more time there.

Really nice, can compete with other main squares of towns in Tuscany, such as Siena. Take a seat in one of the trattorias and enjoy the view.

if you want Toscana, this is it! history from top to bottom and every inch in between. Piazza Grande offers an incredible view of visual delight just as you may have invisioned. With restaurants and cafes dotting the square, I advise to take a seat and truly soak in the views. i highly recommend a stop at La Lancia D'Oro,... More
