“simple but beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

this church might be considered wuite simple if you compare it to the ones you'll see in nearby cities as Siena and Firenze, but it is a very well decorated church with beautiful art, and as there is no fee to enter it, becomes a quite cheaper way to fill in your sightseeing time in Arezzo.

“A joy to visit just before sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We were staying outside the old city and in the early evening set the sat-nav to take us into the centre. Driving in the old city was surprisingly easy, though one tight corner made me feel glad I'd taken out extra insurance on the hire car. There were few other motorists. We parked next to a few cars on the south of the cathedral. Going into it at that time was quite magical. A large group had just come out and were chattering happily outside. There were not too many people inside and most of the light came from candles. All added to a unique experience.

“a working city which is a joy to walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

this town was one of our favourites on our medieval italy tour
again the cathedral is magnificent but we really enjoyed walking the streets and sitting down by the fountain for lunch as it is a working city and not simply geared to tourism
an overnight stay would be sufficient to view all that it has to offer

“A lovely cathedral worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We visited the Duomo early afternoon and discovered it was closed (I think it closes for about 2 hours between 1-3pm). But we only had to wait 15 minutes before they opened again. Entrance is free. We found it to be very lovely, very ornate with beautiful paintings, one in particular being a 15th century frescoe of Mary Magdalene. It was nice just to sit there for a while looking at the beauty of the place. I would recommend it.
