My Hidden Garden

I blogged about this spot some three years back when I spent a month studying in Arezzo. Each day on my way to school I passed a church which held a statue of the Madonna that I fell in love with. There was something about this piece of art that just spoke to me and […]

Perspective

I love this view. Standing at the top of Anghiari’s ( located in the province of Arezzo) main street and gazing off into Umbria in the distance.

Il Teatro Anghiari

I’m not shy about professing my love for Arezzo and the surrounding area. It’s a slice of the real Tuscany and I could take up residence there in a heartbeat. If you find yourself near Arezzo and have a car, you really should take a drive to the medieval town of Anghiari. Situated on the […]

It was an amazing afternoon, complete with tastes and a behind the scene tour of the chocolate production. I […]

Arrivederci Aerzzo

It’s hard to believe, but two weeks have passed and it’s time to leave Arezzo and head over to Lucca. I just walked down to my favorite pasticceria for one (well, probably two or three) last treat and they weren’t open! Well, problem easily solved as there’s another place around the corner and a few […]

I Want One!

Strolling through the antique fair on Saturday, I noticed a group of people hovering in the doorway to a courtyard.Thinking it might have something to do with food I went over and joined the crowd. Inside, under the porticos was a collection of vintage vespas. I walked along checking them out, glad that I had […]

La Fiera Antiquaria-Arezzo’s Antique Fair

On our very first trip to Italy some years back we met an American woman and her daughter who had been staying in the same borgo as we were and they told us about the Arezzo Antique Fair. Held once a month, this is the biggest of its kind in the country and it’s most […]

Out And About On The Bus

I’ve been planning an afternoon excursion to the town of Anghiari which is about 16 miles through the countryside from Arezzo. I first saw the town a few years back as I passed by on the bus and I’ve always wanted to return. Taking the bus is not something I’ve done on my own yet. […]
