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.

One of the most beautiful square in Arezzo. A must for first time visitors. If you come late in the afternoon take the time to enjoy a diner there. We recommend Lancia d'Oro

A beautiful piazza offering a mix of restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops, antique stores. We visited the piazza in July and had lunch there, and it was quiet enough to let the kids roam around and blow some steam off.

There are many piazza Grande in Italy, but Arezzo's was nice. The shields on the wall gave the piazza life and we had excellent dinner at the piazza at a reasonable price. No tourist trap. When visiting Arezzo the Piazza Grande must be on the to do list.

when you come around the corner you don't expect to see this square. It is surrounded by tall buildings decorated with shields, very peaceful, plenty of cafes to enjoy a cup of coffee and watch the world go by. One of the restaurant had a lady outside making different types of pasta's.

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.
