The ancient crafts have come down through the centuries and today Arezzo still produces exquisite gold jewelry and high fashion clothing for the whole world. Its Duomo dominates the city with its size, looking out upon all the roofs of Arezzo and the surrounding hills. Today this square is the theater to the famous Jousting Contest held during June and September, and the world- famous wonderful antique market held during the first Sunday. There are some excellent bargains to be had here, not junk, but excellent pieces of furniture, paintings, and ceramics. Your next stop is Cortona, one of the oldest cities in Tuscany. It’s the more than 2000 years of history that make Cortona one of the most fascinating and charac- teristic of Italian cities.
