I love this area. Popular because of the film ‘La Vita e Bella. It is easy to identify the shops featured in the film. Very interesting to see a lady making fresh pasta outside the restaurant under the porticos. There was a wedding scheduled later...More

The very distinct slant in this piazzza adds to its charm. It was used in the filming of the movie"Life is Beautiful" and there are several posters showing various scenes from that movie on display around the town.

This square is the center of Arezzo. It was not crowded and besides its history everyone who saw "Life is beautiful" will recognize it. It was fun looking up the film clips after visiting the square. When you visit walk down the streets around it....More

If you saw the film "Life is Beautiful" you will recognize this square. Closed to traffic. A Michelin Star restaurant overlooks the square; pricey but food is beautifully presented. Less expensive places are away from this main piazza. As always, this is the hub of...More

The closest parking is Parcheggio Pietri. From there start a series of escalator that allow you to reach easily the city center.
