How to Find the Best Arezzo Hotels with Venere

Arezzo is a small town and capital of the province of the same name, and situated in the Tuscany region of central Italy. Although much of the city may not enjoy the elegance and appeal of other Tuscan cities, the historic parts of Arezzo that survived bombing during the Second World War still paint an idyllic picture. The city began as an Etruscan trading post over 2,000 years ago, and today this thoroughly medieval destination is known for its cultural experience, churches, and museums; ideal for weekend getaways as a couple or a family vacation. Finding the hotel in Arezzo that is right for your budget and expectations can be a difficult process, particularly if there are too many hotels to choose from. With Venere, we make things much easier with the aid of hotel room and facilities photo galleries, our interactive map of the areas around each hotel, and thousands of user-submitted hotel reviews.

What's Arezzo Like?

Arezzo is the ideal place to enjoy an afternoon walk through medieval streets, or enjoy taking a stroll through the monthly antiques fair on the Piazza Grande (Grand Square). The Piazza Grande dates back to the 6th century, and, aside from the market stalls, you can find open air cafes, restaurants, and specialty stores. A little outside the city you can take a tour around the picturesque Villa La Ripa, a Renaissance villa where much of the local wine is produced. For some art and culture appreciation, the popular Museo Statale d'Arte Medievale e Moderna (Museum of Medieval and Modern Art) is a tranquil attraction filled with paintings and sculptures from local artists through Arezzo's history.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Arezzo

Arezzo experiences a humid subtropical climate, which results in long hot summers and pleasant winters. The summer months typically span from mid June to mid August, and average afternoon temperatures typically reach around 85° Fahrenheit, although it has on occasion been known to exceed 105° Fahrenheit. The city is not quite as popular as of Tuscan cities when it comes to tourism, and although many of the locals will speak English, it would be polite to initiate a conversation with "Parla inglese?" (Do you speak English?). If you fancy getting out of the city for a day or two, the Arezzo railway station offers services to Florence, Foligno, Rome, and Naples. One of the most exciting festivals on the Arezzo calendar is the Saracen Joust, a medieval reenactment where many of the locals dress up in period garb and cheer on the "knights", so book your Arezzo hotel with Venere today!
