Tuscany, Italy
Arezzo is the capital of southeastern Tuscany, a city with thousands of years of history. Arezzo owes its position to the Etruscans, who were able to choose strategic positions for the construction of cities. The settlement towers over four valleys: Valdarno, Val di Chiana, Casentino and Val Tiberina.

Arezzo attracts tourists from all over the world its medieval atmosphere of the historic center, surrounded by a mighty wall and, of course, the famous antique fair, which takes place regularly since 1968 every first weekend of the month.

Think about it, the fair will be held in April 2020 for the 612nd time!
Collectors from all over Italy have placed their counters on the narrow streets of the city for more than 50 years. Here you can buy everything from accessories and clothing, to household items and interior. Small visitors to the Italia Per Famiglie travel are attracted to toy sellers and puppet shops. It's so interesting to know what our kids' peers were playing 50, 60, 80 years ago.
Visit the city better to start with the Piazza della Repubblica, which is located in front of the railway station between viale Piero della Francesca and viale Michelangelo. This is the foot of the hill. Following the route, you will inevitably find yourself at the Cathedral of Saints Pietro and Donato (la Cattedrale dei Santi Pietro e Donato), the town hall of Palazzo Comunale and the fortress of the Medicea (la Fortezza Medicea). These sights are located in the highest part of the city.

Leaving the Piazza della Repubblica behind and following the Via Guido Monaco, you will come on the way to the statue of the Benedictine monk Guido d'Arezzo (Guido d'Arezzo), known as the inventor of musical notes.

Next, you should pay attention to the Theater Petrarca (Teatro Petrarca) on the left. Arriving at Piazza San Francesco, visit the 14th-century Romanesque basilica of the same name, known for its frescoes by Piero della Francesca (Piero della Francesca).

It is necessary to make some effort to climb to the top of the hill, where the Fortezza Medicea is located and the beautiful panoramic view. It would be a great idea to go to the street via Andrea Cesalpino, which leads directly to the town hall. Got there? Great! Here is a tourist information center where you can find information about the latest news, exhibitions and events, or how to plan a route to neighboring cities. You will not fail to notice the majestic Cathedral of Saints Peter and Donato (Cattedrale dei Santi Pietro e Donato) in the neo-Gothic style.
You don't want to go into the information center, but would you like to keep up with the news?

Hop! Here's a link to the infopontal city of Arezzo.
Behind the bell tower of the cathedral is a well-maintained city park known as Passeggio al Prato, which extends to the fortress of Medici (Fortezza Medicea) The fortress is open to visit from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 18:00.

You're gonna say, What if I have little kids and I don't want to push the stroller upstairs?

At Piazza Guido Monaco you can take the city bus CS2 (line of the historic center - Feriale Lun-Sab), which with a circular route and a frequency of 3 trips per hour will take you to Passeggio al Prato - stop «V.le Buozzi-Prato».

In that case, the whole way will be downhill. Do not pass by the house of Petrarchi (house of the 13th century, located on the street Via del Orto (Vicolo dell'Orto) under 28.) It is one of the main attractions of Arezzo. It was here that the great Francesco Petrarca was born in 1304. In fact, it is not known whether this is the right house, but it is so nice to believe in this fact!

Descending along the Corso Italia we find on the left a loggia of Vasari, built in the Renaissance.

Thanks to her, Piazza Grande is one of the most beautiful areas in the entire region and got its unofficial name - Vazari Square. The area has a trapezoidal shape and is located under a strong slope. The level difference is up to 10 meters.

The house of the artist and architect Vasari is located on Via XX Settembre, 55.
In the Middle Ages, Piazza Grande was the place of the market, and then in the Renaissance, the heart of urban life. Now there are various events, such as Christmas markets and antique fairs.
