The concert may be over, but we can still enjoy the music.
The monthly antiques market/flea market with its 500 exhibitors and about 100 little shops open all year round during the first weekend of the month, is, since 1968, an added incentive to visit this art-laden city of Arezzo--right in the heart of Tuscany. The antique market takes advantage of the extraordinary scenery of Piazza San Francesco, Piazza Grande, and the Logge del Vasari. The stalls spread over the cobbled-stone side alleys and squares across the historical center, with a backdrop of ancient stone buildings. The influx of Italians and tourists alike, filling the streets of the bustling open-air market, transform the character of the city for the two days of the antique market/flea market.
It’s one thing to “know” someone, it’s another thing entirely to invest time to learn about that someone’s family, their health, their interests. It takes time and effort to form a relationship – to show you really care.
