We returned the car to Arezzo first thing on Saturday morning and after much deliberation decided against catching the train to Florence, opting to stay and look around Arezzo intead. Turned out to be a good decision as it's a lovely town where we easily whiled away several hours looking through the shops and various historical buildings.

I have tried a few different kinds and some are delicious and some are real yucky but I think there is something for everyone. I’m glad I got to try it!
