Beautiful day. Drive from Anghiari through the mountains and forest roads. Easy parking, not so crowded as Lucca or Pisa. Short walk through some crowds along the Main Street and then the peace and tranquillity of this small museum. Hardly anyone else there. The beautiful...More

The architecture, history and art bring me to a state of contemplation and inspiration every time I visit. The little gift shop is a great place to pick up a memento to remind me of this beautiful place.

Hello, there are some fantastic Signorelli and the (obviously) wonderful Beato Angelico. The basement, oratory, should also be seen. The Via Crucis on the staircase is by the futurist Gino Severini is great? You can see it also walking up to Santa Margherita, going by...More

you can do this museum in well under an hour, and it's right near the heart of the pedestrian streets and squares. The frescoes on the lower level are interesting in their own right, in addition to the Fra' Angelico Annunciation

Past and down the hill from the main square - this is the art museum. Small but plan on at least an hour visit. Focused on local artists from the 14th to 16th centuries. Admission id 5 Euros.

Great surprise, we were not expecting to find such a wonderful art collection there from renowned renaissance artists. When you go, don't forget to go downstairs in the oratory. Ceiling and sculptures are breathtaking. Really bot to be missed if you stop in Cortona.

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)....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...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.

Awesome! Great thing to visit while there! It is beautiful! You Can do it in only any hour or so. But well worth the time.
