Ok so this is the second attempt at doing this because blogger did not save my entire post only 1 sentence that I typed up so sorry but this is going to be shorter than it originally was....Yesterday K-Folg (aka Kelley Folger) and I traveled to Arezzo. Every weekend they have an antiques market that takes up a good portion of the streets and of the piazzas. We walked through the market and had a nice meandering day looking at antiques and historic sites. The first historic site we came upon was the Pieve di Santa Maria which has around 100 columns on the outside each one with a different design. We also got to see the Basilica of San Francesco, The Cathedral of Arezzo, The Plazzo Pretorio, Petrarch's house, and the Plazzo dei Priori which is now the town hall. The antiques market was also in the historic Piazza Grande and the area of the Plazzo delle Logge. We also happened upon the Passeggio del Prato a beautifl monument in a gorgeous park. The park also had a breathtaking view. We were pretty lucky and had a mostly sunny day until the end when it started to sprinkle and became quite cold. It was a great day and I would love to be able to do it again.
