The atmosphere in the basilica was cool and a perfect antidote to the scorching sun outside - we were there in the middle of the day! The welcome is warm and friendly, multi-lingual and knowledgeable. The exhibit itself in stunning - the Della Francesca frescos...More

Although not the Duomo, it is the most important church in Arezzo because of the famous fresco cycle of the Stations of the Cross by Piero della Francesca. Entry is limited so get tickets early.

I recommend booking in advance to ensure entry. This was the reason we went to Arezzo and it was certainly well worth the trip.

A one-star experience for a five-star work of art! A wet and windy Tuscan morning, and we were the only visitors to see Piero della Francesca’s mighty frescoes… perfect, I thought! But I’d reckoned without one of the ticket ladies, who decided to click-clack around...More

This church contains the famous frescoes depicting the search for the True cross painted by della Francesca. They’re truly marvelous. One tip, if you have a monocular, bring it: perhaps the best panel, with the death of Adam, is very high up and not easy...More
