Arezzo: Piazza Grande and the Giostra del Saracino

Piazza Grande, also known as Piazza Vasari, is one of the most scenographic and evocative squares in Italy. A well-known antiques market and the Giostra del Saracino, a historical pageant with a challenge between the four districts of the town, are held here. The Court House, the Palazzo della Fraternità dei Laici, the Palazzo delle Logge and the apse of the Romanesque parish church, or pieve, of Santa Maria all face onto the square.
