As much as I am totally taken with Lucca, Arezzo will always hold a special place in my heart. I was lucky to have chosen this charming Tuscan town back in 2008 when I first attended Cultura Italiana, a small language school located right in town.
The daily classes were always fun, but what I really looked forward to were the afternoon excursions around Arezzo and to neighboring towns. Just a short walk from Arezzo’s centro you’ll find the remnants of an ancient anfiteatro. Back in its day this amphitheater held up to 8,000 people.
It’s one of the things about Italy that never ceases to amaze me. You can never be sure what you’ll discover just around the corner.
