Arezzo: the “other” Tuscan town

So, you’ve done Florence, Venice, Rome. You’ve even knocked off a few heavy Tuscan hits, Siena, San Gimingnano and Cortona. But have you been to Arezzo? Or even heard of it?

Here’s six good reasons to go there:

  1. It’s on the major train line between Florence and Rome, so it’s a cinch to get to.
  2. It’s not given over to tourism – Italian is the main language in the streets!
  3. Art. It’s full of it. And no queues!
  4. It has one of Italy’s best antique markets every month
  5. Stunning views of the Tuscan countryside from the top of the hill.
  6. The people are nicer than Florentines!
