Just 1.5 hours from Florence, the small city of Arezzo is home to many Italian secrets and traditions. Here are the top ten highlights that will make your trip unforgettable.

Arezzo is a bargain hunter’s paradise. Every first Sunday of the month, Arezzo’s main square, piazza Grande, is packed with over 500 stalls, spilling out onto the city’s side streets and alleyways. The event draws huge crowds, sometimes up to 30,000 visitors, both locals and tourists alike, all looking for unique items.Roman coins, old telephones, ornate grandfather clocks and china are a few of the typical items to be found. Even if you miss the monthly extravaganza, fear not: Arezzo has many more antiques to offer in its varied local shops, open all year round.
