On Saturday Scotty and I flew from Edinburgh to Milan, took the train to Florence, spent the night and then took a train to Arezzo where we met up with my parents – who had come in from Paris the night before. I sort of expected Arezzo to be little more than a train station. Well, that displays my ignorance because it’s a great little medieval town! And we happened to hit it on the first Sunday of the month, which meant that the streets were packed with an antique fair! Lucky us. Here’s some pics:
Throughout the town there all sorts of products for sale – from homemade pasta, to pretty cool meat slicers, to antiques and a whole lot more. My mom even found a lovely Japanese woodblock print!
I would definitely recommend a visit to Arezzo if you find yourself in the area. It’s charming. And there is a restaurant there that is definitely worth a visit – more details on that to come.
