While visiting Arezzo, spend some time exploring its architectural gems like the Piazza Grande in the historic town centre, the Duomo San Donato, Arezzo’s most famous cathedral, and the Teatro Petrarca, a more modern, yet beautiful theatre. If you love history, you’ll want to check out the Medicea Fort, which was constructed in the 16th and 17th centuries, as well as the archaeological museum, the Basilica of San Francesco, and the Church of Santa Maria della Pieve.
Spend some time outside wandering the parks like Parco Sandro Pertini and Parco Passeggio del Prato. Explore the ruins of the Roman amphitheatre, wander the antique market, and try out the local cuisine. Like most places in Tuscany, this is a beautiful spot to enjoy a glass of wine and a hearty meal while enjoying the countryside scenery. If you’re based out of Arezzo, take the hour trip to Lago Trasimeno and enjoy some time on the water and exploring the lakeside towns that are nearby. No matter what you do while visiting Arezzo, you’ll be sure to enjoy the beauty and culture you experience.
