From Florence to Arezzo: a low-cost one-day trip

piazza grande Arezzo is a lovely medieval town about 50 miles from Florence. Teachers from AdG school often organizes one-day trips to Arezzo for their students. You can easily get to Arezzo. Trains run very often and are quite cheap (10.40 Euro one-day return trip), if you except the Intercity trains, which run faster (30 minutes’ journey) but cost more (27 Euro for one-day return trip). Once you get out of the railway station you are just in front of the old town and ready for the visit. You can take a map for free a the tourist office. Here the highlights:
– the beautiful frescoes by Piero della Francesca in San Francesco church (6 euro for admission ticket);
– the Piazza Grande, one of the steepest squares in Italy, famous for the antiques fair, which takes place the first week-end of each month;
– next to the Piazza Grande the romanesque Santa Maria church (free entrance).
– the Medici’s fortress and its gardens, from where you have a 360-degree stunning view of the town (free entrance).
– the Cathedral with its Gothic style (free entrance).
You may also enjoy a stroll in the Corso Italia, the main street, full of elegant shops and fashionable cafés, where all the people meet and chat on weekends.
As for a break I recommend you the Coffee O’clock, a stylish but not too expensive café with a good selection of wines, delicious espressos and cappuccinos. The café also has a wireless area, monthly Art exhibitions, national and international newspapers and magazines.
