  • The main square of Arezzo is wonderful! Expresses the magnificence of the city and is one of the most beautiful spots. Has shops where you can buy souvenirs and restaurants where you can have romantic dinners. The style is typical of the squares of the great medieval villages and this makes her charming.

  • So certainly the square a little is the emblem of the old but all the old town to visit, the whole is really very beautiful and attracts only few tourists compared to San Gimignano and other Tuscan cities.

  • Beautiful and Historic. Try and always eat outside any piazza Grande because those are always very touristy.
  • Neat piazza. They were preparing for Christmas when I was there, which was cool to see. Really cool to note is the columns on the church are not all alike...
  • Old views and historical buildings and streets as well PANORAMAS is the best!
  • Nice square in the center of Arezzo full of cafes and small shops.
  • Amazing buildings and Art and expert in the office opposite the Etruscan museum, to explain it. Eduardo is so keen and knowledgeable and leads tours for €13/person. The highlight of our day.
