We only stopped through Arezzo to grab a panini from Panini & Co but the Duomo and Piazza Grande were well worth the stop. We had to keep moving to Florence and so didn't stop for a drink on the Piazza but it was beautiful.

I expect this square would rate a higher rating but currently there are undertaking construction work in the square so not at it best. Restaurants/cafes and shops surround the square.

This is a lovely sloping square surrounded by medieval buildings, many now occupied by shops and cafes. Soak in the historic atmosphere of this piazza -- and of Arezzo in general -- while enjoying lunch or a cold drink. A great place to relax and...More

We arrived at 11am and left at 4pm. Drank coffee, climbed the tour, had lunch. Easy to find a table at the many terraces. We love the Piazza Grande.
