This PIAZZA accurately reflects the architecture and mood of its town. There are places to sit out and take in the hundreds of years of history laid out before you. Reminiscent of Siena, without the bustle

The Piazza Grande is for me one of the most beautiful squares Italy. It is great to sit here for a while and drink a coffee or a glass of wine.

Arezzo is a real hidden gem of the Tuscany. If you are staying in this area within 100 km reach, do not miss it. Very nice architectural and historical spots, beautiful Duomo and main square.

Large piazza where we sat and enjoyed a lovely drink. However, there are lots of coats of arms on buildings which we thought just did not go with the style of the old buildings; we weren't sure why they were there but seemed a shame really.

This piazza is really an interesting place to see this is due to the fact that it is built slanting and also it is surrounded with amazing buildings, the most noted is the Santa Maria delle Pieve. Moreover, an interesting fact of this piazza is that some shots of the famous film La Vita e Bella were shot here.

It is an interesting square to see in Arezzo. Like in many hilltop towns in Italy and Tuscany you will stumble this up while walking around .

The prettiest place in Arezzo. One of Italy's most beautiful piazzas and that says a lot. A very nice medieval feeling to it.

The Piazza Grande is a very picturesque sloping red-tiled square with beautiful colonnades on one side . There are no cars to deal with and it adds to the peaceful, convivial nature of this spectacular place.
