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.

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