The territory of Arezzo was inhabited since ancient times. For the Greeks and Latins the city was called Arretium. It was one of 12 Etruscan cities federated, then it was surrounded by stone walls ( of which traces still remain).
Arezzo is one of the Tuscan richest in history and monuments. We recommend a visit to the frescoes of Piero della Francesca, in the Church of "Santa Maria "built in the early 1100, which has a very original facade and a tower called" holes of the hundred ", the" Casa Museo Ivan Bruschi " , Founder of the Antique Market.
Highly recommended as well is a visit to Piazza Grande, where each year the Saracen Joust is played, and where the beautiful "Logge" by Giorgio Vasari can be admired
