Owner description: The spacious and lovely main square features the Town Hall, which dates back to the 6th century.

One of the most beautiful and unique piazzas in Italy. Outside of the newer part of the city, nothing in Arezzo is flat and this piazza reflects that, it's on a severe grade north to south. The "newest" building on the piazza is the Vasari Loggia, built in the 1500s and most of the others far predate that. All of the buildings are interesting but Santa Maria church on the south west corner is particularly stunning (even tho your looking at the back of the church). We have traveled to Italy at least 25 times and this piazza is one of our favorite spots.

At the end of Corso d' Italia, Piazza Grande is the typical Centro of a Tuscan city. gracious and calm in its glourious beauty, it is a must see in arezzo.

of all the piazza's of all the city we visited and there were many we loved this one the best. it was grand indeed and not a big tourist trap like many others. we loved sitting at one of the restaurants and sipping espresso after our resposa and watching the world go by. there was an art installation while we where there of "laundry" that added to the atmosphere. we love Arezzo and will go back again it is a well kept secret and that's why it hasn't been ruined yet!
