Our latest virtual journey to Italy will be to Tuscany to the town of Arezzo.
Arezzo is situated in southern Tuscany; this medieval centre became famous thanks to Roberto Benigni’s movie “Life is Beautiful” which was awarded with 3 Oscars in 1999.
Visiting Arezzo is an unforgettable experience. This charming hilltop city still preserves the rhythm of life that other touristy cities have lost. Every brick or stone exudes centuries of history
Our tour will include a visit to the Gothic Cathedral, renowned for its stained glass windows along with the magnificent “Magdalene” fresco by Piero della Francesca and the glazed terracotta altars by Andrea della Robbia.
Stroll past the medieval City Hall and the Bishop’s Palace, before stopping at the birthplace of Francesco Petrarca one of the main forefathers of the Italian literature. Take a closer look at the Piazza Grande, which is considered one of Italy’s most beautiful squares.
In this wonderful site the famous local Antiques Fair is held the first weekend of every month; and twice a year exactly on this spot, the local medieval tournament, the Joust of the Saracen, takes place. Continue your tour with a visit to the Romanesque Church “La Pieve”; its façade is unique, in particular for its 68 different columns and for its magnificent cycle of medieval sculptures (the Cycle Of The 12 Months).
