Tuscany boasts a wealth of historical re-enactments, but not all of them are as famous as the world-renowned Palio in Siena. If you hunt among the lesser known ancient traditions of the region, you will discover the Giostra del Saracino, a legendary joust between the knights of Arezzo, seeking to defeat a dummy known as the “Saracen”. However, Arezzo is a magical city throughout the year, and not just during the time of the Giostra, due to its stunning paintings by Piero della Francesca, to its churches from every age, to its inestimable world-renowned antiques market.
