Ho passato ad Arezzo due settimane da sogno. La scuola, situata nel centro della città è familiare e piacevole e i corsi in piccoli gruppi sono efficienti. Quanto a la città, è bellissima e ci sono tante cose da visitare: chiese, musei, castello, case di artisti ecc... e possiamo godere della dolce vita italiana sulle terrazze dopo le lezioni!
