We had parked on the edge of the town and walked in, one Sunday. Coming down a dark narrow street which then suddenly opened out on the Piazza Grande was a breath-taking experience. We ended up taking Sunday lunch at one of the restaurants in the arcade which runs along one side of the Piazza, while we were entertained by... More

This is a lovely old square in the middle of the Walled town of Arezzo. Especially attractive when we visited as the square was decorated in anticipation of the bi-annual jousting tournament. Arezzo in general is well worth a visit in any case, and the Piazza Grande is a good place to relax for an hour or so during your... More

The buildings are varied and magnificent. We were there when decorations were being put in place for the Saracen tournament. In addition the antiques fair took place (first Sunday of the month and preceding Saturday). One night the music school put on a concert and we sat on the steps to listen. This was wonderful. Another night the trumpeters were... More

This was a nice square to sit in and watch the world go by. There are some interesting buildings and the square was very quiet. It was lovely to hear the church bells. There are several cafés there but only one was open when we went.

This is great place to drink a campari or whatever it is you prefer. Don't however try and get a martini. Cocktail culture has not spread here, even something as basic as a martini, BUT, there are fabulous local drinks. Many varieties of bitter, herby things, on the rocks or mixed. Very beautiful square, especially in twilight, with your senses... More

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
