While in Cortona, I took a daytrip to Arezzo, a place I have wanted to see since seeing the movie, Life is Beautiful. I wrote about my visit, "the men of Cortona & Arezzo" while traveling last summer. Here are some photos to go with the post.
The Duomo was HUGE!! Too bad it was closed when I arrived.
I bet this would be a fun tower to climb. I wonder if it is open and I wonder how many steps to the top.
Look how much taller the tower is than the trees!
Views of the countryside from the park near the Duomo.
Heading towards Piazza Grande.
Piazza Grande where Life is Beautiful was filmed. Much of it was roped off and there were stands placed in front of all the buildings the day I was there. My guess was that some sort of celebration was going to be happening soon since there were flags hanging all over the town.
My visit to Arezzo was much too short! Next time, I think I would like to stay there for a few days.
