Piazza Grande, Arezzo

Step into the red-brick Piazza Grande in Arezzo to admire Gothic and Renaissance-era palaces and the 700-year-old church of Santa Maria della Pieve. You'll see decorative monuments to, among others, a member of Italy's powerful Medici family. People-watch at your choice of cafes and restaurants. The plaza is slanted downhill, so remember to walk with care if it's wet out. Put Piazza Grande on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Arezzo road trip planning site .

  • If you visit Arezzo, or travel close by, this is a place you should definitely visit. So much history in this medieval town, this is the main square where the Saracino takes place. Even the tower clock is unique, made in 1500, it takes track of the moon and sun cycles.
  • If you have not been to Arezzo you have missed something that you will not understand unless you see it. A true medieval city and the spirit of this Piazza will take you in a mental tour centuries ago when the time was different and so were the people. A must see if you are visiting this area.
  • Gorgeous space, amazing buildings and so many photo opportunities under the blue Tuscan sky. Beautiful.
  • Perhaps one of the most fascinating Piazza on Earth, inclined, a totally a-symmetrical Pieve, the perfect Giorgio Vasari Loggiato, the Confraternita facade... And Memmo restaurant is one of the finest in Tuscany (ask for Andrea, the super nice chef/owner).
