Even if you憎恨antiques,it's impossible to dislike the monthly antique fair in Arezzo.Long ago,当我爬过圣安东尼奥郊区房屋的木质骨架时。Playing hide and seek in pretty dangerous places went par for the course.在一个年轻人的童年里，“出去玩”是必须的，我经常嘲笑那些用旧东西装饰家里的人。In Texas,the shabby chic theme we see so much today has always been in style.也许这是真正生锈的东西，或是可以很舒服地贴上德克萨斯州国旗的木制物品。I just wasn't into any of it.I vowed that one day I would leave Texas and live a glamorous life in NYC,去参加聚会，相对轻松地拿着我的世界主义玻璃的茎。And it when it came to my future house,let's just say Barbie's dream house had nothing on what我本来打算这么做的.I guess you could say I'm a bit of a dreamer,直到我从屁股上下来，决定做实干的那一部分也是很有必要的。
Now,almost 15 year's later I find myself cooing at anything even slightly rustic.Italy has a way of making you appreciate relics of the past,well except the ones glorifying Mussolini.虽然我和任何一个有点像家庭主妇的人都不一样，I do have ideas on how I want our home to look at it often includes a few,poignant pieces.有点像古董药房抽屉，你可以在我最喜欢的佛罗伦萨工匠香水店找到，诱人的Aqua Flor.所以我们离开了，one Saturday morning,Nico,our friend Nancy in tow,去托斯卡纳的阿雷佐镇看看古董集市。This is embarrassing to admit,but I've never事实上visited this famous town that lies only an hour from Florence,四周是四个山谷。
我可能见过他妈的巴莱斯特拉在圣塞波尔克罗，发现最好的餐馆之一in the outskirts,but somehow Arezzo proper has eluded us.It's an elegant town,rich from a history of gold-smiths,the medieval town center was heavily destroyed during WWII.退房this great readfrom电报徳赢全站APPabout it.不幸的是，许多游客在徳赢vwin波音馆托斯卡纳公路上跳过阿雷佐，尽管它是卡塞蒂诺山谷的完美基地，有利于非常观光。San Gimignano,Siena or Cortona.
My advice is to come during the first Sunday of every month (and the previous Saturday),，when the antique fair takes place.这是意大利最大的古董交易会，可追溯到1968年，这真的很酷。有超过500个卖家，around 20,数千名游客聚集在阿雷佐，为货物讨价还价，或只是为了泡在周围地区的气氛中。Corso Italia,Piazza San Francesco,Piazza Grande以及瓦萨里原木。I didn't have overtly high expectations on actually buying anything but what I found was that this town was exactly what we needed.佛罗伦萨,都是为了拥抱一个小镇托斯卡纳的生活。您还可以在Rapolano Terme参观温泉（这是我们所做的），在Castelnuovo Berardenga吃晚餐（更多详情见下文）。
What can you get here?？Well the pictures below paint a better idea than what I myself can explain but it's essentially a beautiful mess of furniture,旧陶瓷板磨损，吊灯，paintings,速写，地图，toys and much,，多more.We picked up a few prints to hang in the house and had lunch at a cute restaurant ‘Osteria Mest' recommended by the fine folks over at Italian Reflections on facebook.
How To Get There
Car: By car,it is only an hour to Arezzo,take the A1/E35 to Raccordo Arezzo – Battifolle in Arezzo.从A1/E35离开Arezzo。继续在Raccordo Arezzo–Battifolle上行驶。Take Viale Gaetano Salvemini to Via Madonna del Prato in Arezzo.或者去任何你想停车的地方。It's 徳赢全站APPabout a 9km drive from the highway to the city.
火车：阿雷佐从佛罗伦萨乘火车到罗马线只需一小时，成本8，40欧元一条路。From what I saw,每小时大约有两列火车徳赢全站APP。Easy!！
The entire list of parking options for the fair arelisted here(in Italian) but we chose the 24/hourParcheggio Pietri (known as Scale Mobili to the Italians) which has a combination of free & paid parking (cheap) with access to the center by escalator.It's 徳赢全站APPabout 400 meters from the fair.The address is Via Giuseppe Pietri,52100 Arezzo AR but put in ‘Parcheggio Pietri' in your GPS or google maps and you'll find it :).
How Often Is The Fair?？
这个菲拉古董takes place the first Sunday of every month and the precedent Saturday.The ‘heart' of the fair stems from piazza grande and surrounding streets that come alive during this weekend.For good deals,早点来！好东西很快就消失了，but before closing time is probably the best time to get a discount.
Fun Options Nearby & A Great Restaurant
拜访白蚁！我们去了特尔玛拉波拉诺-托斯卡纳温泉度假村，a 40 minute drive from Arezzo which is easy to do and fun if you don't mind a deviation,那里有两个水疗中心，we went for Antica Querciolaia.
Combine that with a stop for dinner at贝拉登加酒店，，尼科一位同事的建议，，in the tiny town of Castelnuovo Berardenga and you will thank me later.这个简单的策略很神奇，with the best roasted duck with thyme this girl has ever tasted.Get everything,预约。地址：Via del Chianti，70/74，Castelnuovo Berardenga SI. Phone:0577 355547.
