The square is a beautiful open space. Anyone visiting Arezzo should always make time to visit and appreciate the buildings and the herringboned paving following the contours of the hill. There's the usual shops you would expect, but I went to see the square itself....More

During Xmas time is not possible see the whole place due to the little market made inside it. But from the top of the building of the museum clock tower is possible see whole square landscape as well. Fantastic colours inside.

Piazza Grande is the most famous square in Arezzo. Once you visit the city you must pass by this place and enjoy the medieval architecture of the surrounding buildings and churches. You can also sit in one of the cafes scattered all over the place...More
