You'll not be disappointed by this unassuming museum across from the main Cathedrale/Duomo. The entry is reasonable at 3-4 Euros. There is much to see, but highlights would be the Luca Signorelli Room (4-5 paintings by the master as well as some by his assistants/adherents). The Annunciation (Tryptych) by Fra Angelico is super famous and breath taking. Be prepared for... More

The Museo Diocesano and what it offers will make an atheist marvel … at Fra Angelico's "Annunciation," Signorelli's "Lamentation," Severini's "Stations of the Cross," and the vaulted ceiling of breath-taking frescoes of Vasari. And if an atheist gets "converted" as the result, he or she can browse in the basement at ecclesiastical gear worn by the clerical elite of an... More

The Annunciation by Fra Angelico is an extraordinary painting, in part due to the artist's inspiration and in part because it is in such extraordinary condition. There are other fine works here including those by Pietro Lorenzetti and Sasseta.

This is a gem of a place just by the cathedral. It's small but really worth a visit with some great 15th and 16th century paintings. Beneath the gallery is a small chapel with walls painted with Frescos. Having been to Florence the size and intimacy of this little gallery was very refreshing. The added bonus is they have a...

Small but nice muséum, most important for Fra Angelico's paintings. Essentially for 15th and 16th century paintings. Quiet and not crowded.

This small affordable museum (5E) is never crowded. A beautiful collection of religious art from the 15th and 16th century, an amazing collection of early art in great condition. On a hillside looking over the fabulous Tuscan countryside. You could paint beautiful scenes from this view.

Well laid out and easy to follow, plenty of information on everything written in English. Takes you step by step through each of the different Era's that have been found in the region, so many well displayed and well cared for artifacts.
