Giostra del Saracino

Among the ancient Medieval traditions that Tuscans love to celebrate is the festival of Giostra del Saracino, or Joust of the Saracen (Moor) in Arezzo. During the event, the entire city becomes vibrant with the colors of the teams.
The Joust is held twice every year – once during the the third Saturday in June and on the first Sunday in September in Arezzo's beautiful Piazza Grande. Piazza Grande is 1 km away from Agriturismo La Striscia, which makes it the perfect hotel close to the centre to choose from. Enjoy the excitement in the Centre and retreat to the countryside after the party is over!


Full day in Cortona, Siena, Florence, Rome

Can be arranged including guide and transportation,


Traditional Fiera dell’antiquariato

When in Tuscany, one thing to tick off your bucket list is to visit the the Antique Fair in Arezzo, which takes place in the first weekend of every month, a congregation of over 400 vendors of antiques and treasures! The Fiera is a short walk away from the Hotel, allowing you to stroll through the market which spreads from Piazza Grande to all the cobbled streets of the medieval historical centre of Arezzo.
We are happy to assist you with transport, tips and offer you all the information you require once you check-in!
