  • The fortress is hidden behind the trees and you can't see it from the near-by park with monument to Petrarca. When visiting the cathedral and the Piazza grande, you should visit the fortress as well. ...  more »
  • Here you can visit a fortress. Nothing exquisite. Signs etc. is up much space after. There are better places in Arezzo...

  • A majestic fortress that dominates the view of Arezzo. Recently renovated, which was not yet finished, lets take a walk into the past and immerse yourself in the Majesty of the Medici power. There is a picturesque Park and even more impressive the walk to do around the perimeter walls that allow you to have a 360° panorama for Arezzo and its surroundings. It was truly an exciting visit. Very nice park outside the fortress. A visit which I highly recommend to everyone.

  • Very good example of late Italian Renaissance fortification.
  • Love how they're renewing the place, making it welcoming for people
  • Behind the Cathedral of Saint Peter and Saint Donatus, a place to visit, a great place for some panoramic photo and enjoy the view of the hills. Charming garden which precedes the entrance, within walking distance, close to the city centre, great for a quiet break

  • The fortress has several well-preserved areas although they are restoring others. The wall is flawless and fabulous views. Also free entry

  • Restored fortress from which you can enjoy a beautiful view of the city. Some jobs are still to be completed, but overall nice
