My family and I are planning on going to Florence for a day trip from our base at the hotel Chiarentana. We didn't want to drive into Florence as it seemed too much of a hassle to deal with the car. Our idea was to park in Arezzo and take the train in. Our trip is in the summer so I was wondering it it is necessary to reserve parking at the train station in Arezzo now or is it fine to just show up with our car. If so where/how can I make a reservation. Also during the little time we do have in Arezzo do you have any small suggestions of activities like a coffee shop or breakfast place before we get on the train to Florence.

Thank You!
