Amazing town. We walked around the historic centre for over two hours and were amazed at every corner. The whole area is medieval and history oozes from every niche in the stone walls. Be amazed by the ancient frescoes in the Basilica di San Francesco. If you drive, head to the old city gates and turn left, circling the city... More

The square is beautiful indeed but what makes it really lovely are the pageants hung all over the surrounding buildings. Seems they represent all the old medieval families and districts of Arezzo. We have visited Arezzo for about 2-3 hours and strolled all over the town. We ate our brunch in Piazza Grande, under one of the portico restaurants and... More

On the recommendation of our hotel - the Il Borro Ferragamo Estate- we ventured out on a day trip to the lovely Tuscan town Arezzo. The drive there was short and scenic. Crossing the small Buriano bridge (with a history related to the famous Mona Lisa painting) on the way, was an unexpected bonus. Parking was easy, we were given... More

Arezzo is a wonderful place to visit! History, authentic places, quite life now with memory of great economy and artistic life in the past centuries...

It was really very interesting to see all the exhibitors and different types of arts, crafts and food on display on the Christmas Eve. Square itself is also beautiful.

A beautiful small piazza where the film "Life is Beautiful" was filmed. Enjoy a drink and the sights. A nice park with a scenic view of the countryside is nearby.

Stunning square in the old part of the city, often decorated with the flags of the city's neighborhoods, and the site of the historic Saracen joust held twice a year. Similar to the famed palio in Siena, the entire city joins in the costumed parades, competitions, and celebrations. The piazza is framed by fine restaurants, antique shops, and the Pieve,... More
