Arezzo, cradle of art and artists. The land that gave birth to geniuses such as Piero della Francesca, Michelangelo Buonarroti and Giorgio Vasari leaves you speechless showing you universally known treasures and lesser-known pearls.
Around in search of Piero della Francesca: where to go? The Basilica of Saint Francis in Arezzo, the Civic Museum of Sansepolcro and the Museum of the Madonna del Parto in Monterchi make up three sets of places but they are not the only places where to stop and admire the masterpieces of this wonderful painter.
For an antique enthusiast, the Roman Amphitheatre and the Gaio Cilnio Mecenate National Archaeological Museum, both in Arezzo, are a must. Continue your itinerary in the city to contemplate the Crucifix by Cimabue in the Basilica of San Domenico. Discover valuable works of different centuries and authors at the National Museum of Medieval and Modern Art.
An itinerary dedicated to Giorgio Vasari moves you from Piazza Grande to the Badia of saints Flora and Lucilla to the Museum of Casa Vasari.
In Caprese Michelangelo in Valtiberina, you can see the birthplace of Michelangelo Buonarroti.
Take a trip to Castiglion Fibocchi and do not miss the Town Hall with its Clock Tower and the Church of Saints Peter and Ilario. Pleasant surprises are also contained in Castiglion Fiorentino in Valdichiana where the Collegiate Church of Saints Michele and Giuliano and the Pinacoteca are definitely worth a visit. Always in the province, this time in Casentino cut out some time for a visit to the Wool Art Museum of Stia.
