Stunning views

Well worth the climb to what is the top of the city. Some great views and photo opportunities. A very pleasant end to a most enjoyable day.

Piazza Grande in Arezzo is a good place to sit down at one of the upside/sunny side cafes, have a glass of prosecco or a cop of espresso, and enjoy the atmosphere, where present day meets the medieval buildings surrounding the inclined square.

As described by most travelling guidebooks, this is one of the most beautiful Piazza in Italy, with all historic buildings in various style. Full of history, charming.

Piazza Grande is a lovely square - lots of shops, cafes, etc. around it. On a nice day you can sit outside at a cafe with a nice glass of wine and enjoy the view of history around you. A great mix of architectural eras and styles, it is a must when visiting Arezzo. A bit of a walk from... More

One of the best medieval squares in Italy. The best part is that it's titled! It could be a little overcrowded in the morning because of the market.

Arezzo's piazza grande offers pleasant options for a day out, especially during the saracino times of the year but always offers a dip into medieval times connecting most old parts of the city.

Got there with the family, to check out the amazing marker coming from the northern part of Italy. A lot of fabulous little shops and small kitchens able to cook home made pastries from the Dolomites. Great atmosphere, great organisation, feels like the best Christmas ever

It is a very beautiful square surrounded by different kind of buildings: palaces, towers and churches. In June and in September it hosts the famous medioeval tournament known as the Giostra del Saracino. There are nice bars and restaurants where you can relax and admire this beautiful place.

Worthwhile visiting such a different sloping Piazza and enjoying the ambience while having a coffee, or a meal, or a drink. We've done all three because it's such a lovely place.

The constellation of edifices and their once upon a time intended usage is a charge. The slope and not yet the bustling shops, leaves this piaza as a large area as a piazza should be. Turn a corner and it is interesting again.
