Arezzo is a very ancient city, whose origins are Etruscan: fallen under the domination of Florence in 1384, the city is the hometown of the Italian poet Petrarch. Have a walk along the charming historical alleys of the city and discover its many historical and architectural treasures, such as the imposing Saint Mary church, characterized by its impressing façade and majestic bell tower; or the Basilica of San Francesco, the late Medieval building dedicated to Saint Francis of Assisi and decorated with charming frescoes.
A wedding in Arezzo can be a real work of art: mentioned in the Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri and painted by Leonardo da Vinci in the background of the worldwide renowned masterpiece “Mona Lisa”, Arezzo has been an inspiration and a setting for more modern forms of art as well… it is in fact on the main square of this charming city that a great number of scenes of the award-winning movie “Life Is Beautiful” by Roberto Benigni were shot.
Weddings are celebrated in a hall of the Palazzo Comunale (town hall) that gives directions on this very square: the perfect wedding venue for movie fans and art lovers! A wedding in Arezzo is a marriage in the heart of history and art!
