“On antiques market weekend, this piazza (and all of Arrezo!) is a must-do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

The antiques market will take you the entire day, and you still won't see all of the stalls, but you can decide ahead what you want to shop for (art? Lace? Clocks? Furniture?) and narrow your focus. A guide is published with the hundreds of antiques sellers all listed and categorized, for ease of use.

And on all the other days of the month, the piazza is just beautiful, surrounded by shops and cafés. Get a gelato and sit in the warm Italian sunshine...

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Most Brit tourists will see the Paglia in Siena, but I think this, though much smaller, is every bit as charming - with the added bonus of being filled with Italians rather than tourists (excepting me, of course!!)

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

This Piazza was chosen for a few shots taken for La Vita é Bella, and if you liked the movie you'll love walking around the city and specially by the Piazza. It is really a charming place which will truly make you feel inside the movie.

“Unique”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

One of the most beautiful and unique piazzas in Italy. Outside of the newer part of the city, nothing in Arezzo is flat and this piazza reflects that, it's on a severe grade north to south. The "newest" building on the piazza is the Vasari Loggia, built in the 1500s and most of the others far predate that. All of the buildings are interesting but Santa Maria church on the south west corner is particularly stunning (even tho your looking at the back of the church). We have traveled to Italy at least 25 times and this piazza is one of our favorite spots.
