Arezzo : Michelin's recommendations
Known since Antiquity for its Arezzo vases, this was the birthplace of the renowned patron of the arts, Maecenas. The town’s famous citizens include artists such as the monk Guido d'Arezzo, inventor of the modern musical scale; the writers Petrarch andAretino; and the painter-sculptor-architect Giorgio Vasari. However, Arezzo owes its reputation as an important art centre to Piero della Francesca and his magnificent frescoes in San Francesco church.
