Italy 2015 ~ Arezzo Antique Fair, Tuscany

The monthly Arezzo Antique Fair in Tuscany fell on our dates to be in Tuscany this year, and Monica and Denise were excited about visiting their first Italian antique fair. Arezzo was about 45 minutes, and we had a beautiful day for the fair. The entire historic district is blocked off to cars and all the streets are lined with vendors. Besides antiques, there are also artisans and food vendors. Plan to spend an entire day or several!

There were a few available tables outside Vita Bella Restaurant and Coffee Bar on Piazza San Francesco, so we parked and ordered. The pizza and carbonara pasta were sooooo good!
