Arezzo Antiques Fair, Art and Craft - CODE: ACAR06
4 days 3 nights
Enjoy a weekend with focus on Tuscan art, antiques and handicraft! Arezzo is a quiet town built on the top of a sunny hill, far from the traffic of the main roads and from the stress of the big cities, but conveniently located to travel around Tuscany. On the first Sunday of the month and the previous Saturday, the historical center turns into a spectacular outdoor market, with invaluable antique furniture and precious items for the most demanding collectors. The antique fair takes place in the heart of the town every month since 1968: it hosts about 500 exhibitors and 100 antique shops in the historic center. The high quality of exhibitors has brought the fair of Arezzo to be one of the best known in Italy, and an unmissable appointment for all enthusiasts and collectors, but also for those curious to discover our culture through the quality craftsmanship.
