Arezzo is a nice town and it's worth visiting. The views are beautiful and the same is the architecture of the buildings. The center square is interesting. It's also good for shopping.

We had some time to wander the streets of Arezzo and it is a small but beautiful town with a magnificent main square. Medieval back streets pop out into the surrounding streets making a lovely sightseeing hour or two

We took the train from Florence for a day trip in Arezzo. It was the weekend of the antique market (monthly?? - be sure to check). This is a very manageable, walkable town with a lovely old center on a hill (you will be doing some up hill and down hill walking. The antique market is spread over many, many... More

They were preparing the Piazza for the Big Event coming on Saturday so it was very busy! But it is a beautiful Piazza!

We visited mid June and half of the buildings were hidden because of Giostra del Saracino celebrations and high benches (twice a year in June and September and we managed to miss it by just an hour!).

We visited during the day, just two weeks before the show. It had the scaffolding up and chairs in place. As a consequence it was difficult to see the piazza in its glory, however it was clear that it is very impressive. I would definitely suggest a meal at one of the restaurants on the square or indeed visit the... More

We scheduled to go there for the great film and antique market.Take some photos of the place where the film took.Many interesting things on the market.But I think the market actually is a local business thing.Not many antique indeed.Still worth going.Be awared that the market is only open on the first weekend of month.

On the first Sunday of each month there is an antique market which fills the streets of the main old town area. You can't really appreciate the town with all the tents but there is some wonderful architecture. The views looking down and out over the countryside are typical and lovely. Streets wind up and around this area and you... More

If you are travelling in Arezzo you definitely need to stop at the Piazza Grande. The medieval square and clock tower are worth visiting. The panoramic views from the clock tower are definitely worth the the 3 euro cost.
