This place has a nice feel of the original town. It's quiet our busy and noisy depending on what time you visit. Just sit and absorb the atmosphere.

This plaza is a good example of the magnificent buildings in this hidden gem. The city is full of photo opportunities and activities. Others compare it to Florence, although nowhere near the same scale it could easily stand two or three days of your exploring...More

This square is the center of Arezzo. It was not crowded and besides its history everyone who saw "Life is beautiful" will recognize it. It was fun looking up the film clips after visiting the square. When you visit walk down the streets around it....More

If you saw the film "Life is Beautiful" you will recognize this square. Closed to traffic. A Michelin Star restaurant overlooks the square; pricey but food is beautifully presented. Less expensive places are away from this main piazza. As always, this is the hub of...More

The Piazza Grande is impressive and not touristy. When we visited it they were preparing for a classical music concert. It looked a nice place but not where the best bars and restaurants are.

One of the world's most beautiful areas I've seen. I was here around noon, during siesta. There are few tourists, peace, silence, tranquility, historical mood. Amazing, wonderful place.

We enjoyed strolling through this beautiful square. As it was a weekend, there was an antique market going on, which made it even more interesting. This is the heart and center of this lovely, historic town.

This the largest of the piazzas in Arezzo. The medieval architecture and coffee shops make it a great to sit for a while and just enjoy being there.

Went to the monthly antiques market here and it was packed with over 500 vendors in the area and lots of shoppers. The film “Life is Beautiful” was filmed here. Lots of small shops and several restaurants border this lovely piazza. Don’t miss this monthly...More

The closest parking is Parcheggio Pietri. From there start a series of escalator that allow you to reach easily the city center.
