  • Interesting place to visit if you are into art, architecture and urban planning. Locals make fun of them as “hippie nut jobs” but I found everyone to be very pleasant and nice, our tour guide was wond...  more »
  • We didn't take the tour. So we couldn't see too much of the buildings. But what we saw was quite interesting. Take the time to read the timeline/history in the stairwell and you'll learn a lot about t...  more »
  • Arcosanti is a living artifact of the imagination of Paolo Soleri. I've been several times. The tours vary in quality depending on the tour guide's knowledge and interests, but I always learn somethin...  more »
  • I live and work here in Arcosanti, and this is one of the most powerful and eye opening experiences I've had living in a place. I work in the cafe from time to time, and everyday our chefs (residents) get to choose what they want to cook. Never a set menu. We always have vegan and gluten free options, but if you want to know exactly what we're making, call ahead! It's a buffet/family style type of eating. Make sure to take a tour and spend the night. This project is AMAZING.
  • Play a good game of chess and enjoy your great tasting hot coffee while you see unbelievable views of cliffs, valleys and skies. Unique architecture design with a pleasurable attitude. Food was very good and had many dishes to choose from. Sunrise or sunset the view are incredible well worth the trip!
  • Did not have food, service times are berry limited so plan ahead, but otherwise, loved the tour.
  • Good food at reasonable prices including breakfast and lunch menus. The local artist and worker population eat here, too. Hike to the other side of the canyon for a full view of the buildings.
  • Only had coffee and tea but this is not the place you come to eat but rather to see a glimpse of what a future model city might look like. Only a small portion of the vision is represented in what has been built, but very interesting nevertheless. Visit Arcosanti and buy a on-site made bronze or clay bell. Do not miss the videos before the free tour. Really helps you understand what you are looking at.
