Things to do for a long stay in Arezzo.

I am studying abroad in Arezzo for several weeks with a group of students, and we were wondering if there was anything to do before like 22:00. It is too hot to be outside for long but we don't know what is nearby to occupy our time. Transportation is only walking or public transportation (very limited). I doubt there are english movie threatres or bowling alles like back at home, but what do kids here do for entertainment. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

Are you here now? Are you looking for cultural, or activities, or nightlife? If you are here now, the Giostra del Saracino is coming up this Saturday on June 23rd. Most activities will take place in the Piazza Grande but there will be stuff throughout the day with the main "Giostra" beginning at 9pm or so. You could train somewhere (i.e Florence or Cortona or further) for the day.

There is an indoor pool at the Arezzo Sports Center (7 Viale Gramsci) Tel: 0575 353 315

Nearby in Monte San Savino (you could take a bus) is the Crocodile Acqua Water park open during the summer months. June - August from 9:00 - 19:00. 7 days a week, including holidays. At Pantano (Monte San Savino), Marciano Della Chiana, Tel: 0575 845 176

What things specifically are you looking for?

Thanks, the Giostra was my favorite part of my stay!!

We ended up mostly just walking around downdown (not between 2 and 6, though, everything is closed!). At night there was something at the Piazza San'Augostino every night! We did go to a movie once at the UCI Cinemas (http://www.ucicinemas.it/1580/index.php) which was about a 25 minute walk from downtown. Also, there is a bus that drops you off literally at the door of the Piscina Florida (a public pool), which was really nice in the summer Arezzo heat!

In case anyone needs suggestions in the future!

We've just travelled over an hour to the crocodile water park. Disappointingly they said the weather was not good enough and they weren't going to open. It was above 30 degrees and sunny with a few clouds. Two sad children later we trundled off :( Avoid wasting your time

Catch the train to Castiglione del Lago or Passignano sul Trasimeno; jump on the ferry to walk on the Maggiore and Polvese islands.
