Arezzo is an Etruscan town in Tuscany, located at the intersection of four valleys (Val Tiberina, Casentino, Valdarno and Valdichiana). Its ancient origins are traced back through an archaeological discovery of a Paleolithic man and ancient tools. Pleasant pastel stone buildings blend in many similar Medieval and Renaissance styles. As Arezzo fell under the influence of the Medici’s grand duchy for a time, its public buildings, aristocratic palaces, churches, and artwork reflects Florence’s richness. The Basilica of San Francesco is the most famous church of the town. It preserves a series of frescoes of the “Leggenda della Vera Croce” made by Piero Della Francesca, a Renaissance masterpiece of inestimable value. Not to be missed, the Roman Amphitheatre and the Church of San Francesco. At the top of the town, ruins of the Medici fortress overview picturesque Tuscan countryside drowned in olive groves and vineyards.
