    Default Arezzo - Giostra del Saracino in Arezzo in June and September Every Year

    I am travelling to Florence in early September.

    Would like to take my sister and partner to the Giostra del Saracino in Arezzo, on Sunday 7 September.

    Can people advise?

    How to get tickets if at all.
    What time does the parade start.
    Can people get into the piazza free to watch the tornament or do you have to purchase tickets.

    Appreciate any assitence or advice

    Have you already read this article dedicated to the Giostra del Saracino?
    The site linked at the bottom has more details on tickets - there are standing room tickets so it means the piazza is closed off from "free" entrance.

    Tickets start being sold August 28th and are sold in Arezzo, up to the day of the tournament.
    You might not find seated spots by then, but it is likely you will find standing room tickets (6 euro).
    Since the tournament is earlier (at 5pm), the parade should start earlier too, I think around around 3:30pm.
    In the beginning stages of planning to come to Tuscany? Make sure to read Where to Stay in Tuscany WITH a car and Where to Stay in Tuscany WITHOUT a car for ideas on where to stay in Tuscany. Also read When to Visit Tuscany to decide when is the best times for your visit.
