arezzo in 30 pictures is not very comprehensive even if we spent a couple of days in town.
i start with a few pictures from the hills we drove through before we reached arezzo.
we were looking for a decent parking spot and we came across what proved to be the local highlight for me. it was not easy to find the details. i believe that the buildings are by lucherini associati and the complex is called il parco. that is because it is located exactly on the side of the park sandro pertini. i may not be the best photographer but i hope you can tell how interesting the architecture is.
after we parked, we walked all the way to the city center. we had about 10 minutes before it started pouring!
so we spent at least one hour sheltered in a coffee bar. a nice coffee bar: they even had magazines! i sneaked out to get a gelato and spent my time chilling because we were kinda trapped. i had a hard time tracking down this place on google but i finally succeeded. it’s called caffeteria sandy.
when the rain stopped a little, we walked out. we saw a little part of the center.
then we took shelter in a big book store. we went upstairs and leafed through books. i liked it since i never have the time to do that.
and we finally had to eat our hearts out and walk back to our car. here, we found a little shortcut. instead of walking on the street, in the rain, we went through the very cool ground floor area of my favourite buildings.
this is the semi-olympic swimming pool of the sports club hotel we stayed at. everything was great but nothing was as spectacular as the empty pool!
this is the dinner-to-go we picked from this place we found. the lady serving was romanian so she recomended what was good. she was so nice we ordered too much.
yes, the suite had an upstairs.
they wouldn’t let us swim in the evening because it was raining so we could have been possibly hit by lighting. but after we had breakfast in the next morning and before we went off, we took full advantage of the wonderful pool.
we totally recomend the asc hotel if you are in town and have a car and love to swim.
stay tuned for more posts from italia!
