Guided tour of Arezzo
Walk with a professional guide to discover the art treasures of a city rich in history, far from mass tourism

One of the oldest cities in Tuscany, Arezzo has been inhabited since the 7th-8th century b.C. by the Etruscans and then by the Romans. The numerous artifacts found and preserved in its Archaeological Museum bear witness to this. 

The remains of the roman amphitheater testify to its importance in the imperial age. Here was born Caio Cilnio Mecenate, the famous minister of culture of Augustus, at the origin of the word "patron" still used in all modern languages ​​to define protector and financier of the arts. 

Arezzo was also the birthplace of Guido Monaco or Guido d'Arezzo, inventor in the 11th century of musical notes. Many other poets and artists were born here like: Francesco Petrarca, Giorgio Vasari and Pietro Aretino
The film "Life is beautiful" by Roberto Benigni, winner of 3 Oscars, was shot in its narrow medieval streets and squares. The historic center is full of museums and masterpieces of art and architecture, from antiquity to the Renaissance. 

This tour allows you to better discover the charm of this city.
