• Arezzo has its roots in Etruscan culture, when it was famous for its red-clay “Arretine” pottery. The Romans knew it as Arretium.

    Although damaged during the war, it is replete with important architecture – including the cathedral, which was started in 1286 … and finished in 1946! The Piazza Grande (pictured) makes a fine centrepiece.

    Among its best known children are writers Petrarch and Giorgio Vasari.
