Charming old piazza. Quite large but feels empty. Not as many tourists. Lots of restaurants nearby. It's all uphill so be prepared. Don't forget to further up for some of the best views in tuscany.

Always fun. Eat at Gnicche (amazing fennel salad) and wines. Meat and cheese to take if you're on a road trip. Great breakfast at Café Vasari overlooking the piazza.

We only stopped through Arezzo to grab a panini from Panini & Co but the Duomo and Piazza Grande were well worth the stop. We had to keep moving to Florence and so didn't stop for a drink on the Piazza but it was beautiful.

Being one of the more famous squares in Arezzo, one must make a quick stop to the Piazza Grande. When here, there was an opera taking place in the square. I sat and watched the production of "Cosi Fan Tutte" and drank a glass of...More

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