    Enchanting Arezzo: The Tuscan Town of Your Dreams

    Arezzo is a place that defines the cliche hidden gem. Not far from Florence, here you'll find one of the prettiest piazzas in all of Italy, a slower pace of living and centuries' old traditions. The city has been featured in several Oscar winning movies and is a perfect window into local Tuscan life. 

    Our guest Debora Bresciani joins us to share her love of her city and its surrounds and you'll be left wondering why you didn't visit Arezzo sooner.
