The heart of Arezzo
Oct 2021
Interesting central square with some baroque architecture. Many buildings have coats of arms mounted on them which is an interesting study. Restaurants are good. Santa Maria Della Pieve backs on to square and it has some unique architectural features.

Worth a detour

Impressive and wonderful piazza in this small town a bit off the classical Tuscany highlights. Spectacular buildings and nice atmosphere well worth the visit (and the rest of the old town is equally interesting)

Great square
Aug 2021
A beautiful square with many buildings left from the Middle Ages. There are many cafes and restaurants here, and there were plenty of people during my visit on Sunday afternoon.

We stayed at an hotel right by the square. Simply amazing. Try to stay there and have a good aperitivo at one of the cafés on the square.

One of the City highlight

Very interesting central place with its inclined ground which will certainly deserve a few pictures
Nice view to the back of the church as well as the arcads on the side.

One of my favorite Piazzas in all of Italy!
May 2019
Great restaurants and shopping. Beautiful medieval city. The fact that it is slanted makes it so unique. Was not able to enter the cathedral because it was closed, but it is lovely on the outside. I simply love Arezzo!

Piazza Grande a daily visit!
Nov 2019
Dined at several restaurants on the Piazza and all were excellent. We were there everyday and were there for the Christmas village. Everything was lit up for the coming Christmas season with beautiful light shows on the buildings. The children lined up to see Baba Natale and Mickey Mouse added to the air of excitement and expectations! We loved having after dinner drinks and watching the activities when the place came alive in the evening.

One of the most beautiful Piazza's I have ever seen.
Oct 2019
I found myself almost overwhelmed by this piazza. It is so different from most of the Piazzas in Tuscany, which tend to be flat because they were designed for sporting events - chariot or bare-back horse races or even football pitches.This huge piazza breaks all the rules as it has an uneven shape and stretches downhill but it has a spine-tingling charm - especially when you remember Roberto Benigni, together with screen wife and son hurtling downwards in La Vita e Bella!
