Wedding in Arezzo

If you are looking for a charming Medieval Tuscan atmosphere for your Wedding, you will be certainly captured by Arezzo that moreover offers plenty of different options for your reception and Wedding Ceremony. The churches and their works of art are what keep this Tuscan hill town on the map: the Basilica San Francesco with Piero della Francesca's magnificent fresco cycle, The Legend of the True Cross, painted in the 1400s; the Church of San Domenico and Cimabue's 13th-century Crucifixion; and the Romanesque Pieve di Santa Maria with its bell tower - an emblem for the city - that has 40 windows.

 Arezzo is also home of Francis Petrarca and the movie producer, writer, director and actor Roberto Benigni who has mostly filmed “Life is Beautiful” in Arezzo. Tired of refined culture? Attend the fun Antique Fair in Piazza Grande, held the first Sunday of the month – all year. The Arezzo antiques fair started in 1968, and has become one of the most important in the country. The fair is set in the most picturesque parts of the old medieval town centre and over 800 antiquarians exhibit every month For a less commercialized version of Siena's Palio horse race, attend the Giostra Saracino, Sunday in September and last week of June, a very particular joust that takes place in Arezzo, a sort of tournament that takes inspiration from a past with graceful ladies and proud knights in armour . Everything happens on the last week of June ad 1st Sunday of September; the knights defy a steady puppet wearing an armour, with a sort of medieval bludgeons in one hand. The puppet turns around every time that the knights strike its shield, so that they have to be able to avoid to be bludgeoned.

Arezzo is an incomparable setting for Wedding in Italy Day and a perfect backdrop for a unique wedding pictures!
