This cathedral is set in an impressive setting with an open park in front of it. Inside is a Piero della Francesca fresco, as well as beautiful stained glass windows. We were able to visit just before they closed for the afternoon.

This Duomo dominates the high point of Arezzo and is set in a spacious open square. Viewed from the square you don't appreciate just how vast is the interior which sadly I found to be rather dark and oppressive but otherwise interesting.

Beautiful glass windows which let the sunlight penetrate gently. Inside there is the grave of a Pope and a special wing dedicated to virgin Mary.

Not the most spectacular Duomo in Italy, San Donato holds its place on the top of a hill in Arezzo, with roads leading from it to other parts of the city. We went to Arezzo mainly for the medieval fair on the first Sunday in...More

Stopped in to see this church on our wanderings through town. It’s high on a hill and somewhat isolated. But there’s a lovely park nearby. No admission charge makes it easier to walk through. Not a very impressive alter but large and nice to see.

Sitting atop a hill, this imposing church dominates the town of Arezzo. We passed by but were unable to stop but can be seen from most any angle around the city.

I’m utterly enamored with Piero della Francesco so much so that I’ll go just about anywhere to see his work. Granted, this cathedral only has one work by him, a fresco of Mary Magdalene, but I think that seeing it alone was enchanting. It made...More

Such a beautiful place to go with friends and family! Near to a park with a beautiful view! I highly recommended!

The cathedral is high above the city next to a park and the Medici fort. Not as interesting inside as many of the churches, especially the Basilica di San Francesca, which houses the famous frescos.
