I became interested in Vasari since I moved to Arezzo and his home is a wonderful example of his art and life. Such beautiful frescoes and art in each room. There is no furniture which is a shame but the house and garden are really beautiful, well worth a visit.

Like others, I also visited the Vasari house as part of the combination ticket with San Francesco, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. From the outside, it is very unassuming, but on the inside the collection of paintings, as well as the frescoes and ceilings make it a great place to wander into for a nice short visit. Full...

When you visit the Church of San Francesco you have the option of also seeing the Vasari house. Take the option. From the street it is simply a house, but inside the ceilings are amazing. Think Sistine chapel on the ceilings of an "ordinary" house. Wow!!

It realy feels like somebody's home. A lot of frescos to be seen from vasari and his contemporaries. It could be a bit more developped, vasari is after all a very important artist in history. Not much is mentioned about his written works.

I did not care much for Vasari's frescoes in the Duomo in Florence. But his house shows a very different side. Every room in the modestly sized house (first floor) is painted with beautiful figures, fascinating range of narratives and scenes, so many different moods. This was a man who loved to paint (and probably had lots of helpers, as... More

For me this is a hidden gem of Arezzo. Small museum with some masterpieces, and the house itself is a treasure. The garden seemed lacking in maintenance but for me that made it all the more charming.

This house was an unexpected pleasure The ceiling were all individually designed and painted by Vasari. All of which were spectacular and in great condition. I really appreciated the focus on women. Staff were very kind and helpful.

This house, decorated by Vasari with amazing ceilings in all the rooms, and wonderful art from the time period hanging on the walls, is well worth seeing. The raised garden is lovely, but strangely has been let go and doesn't seem to be being taken care of. I hope that is remedied soon.

Giorgio Vasari is Arezzo's home oy, her favorite son. Born in Arezzo in 1511' he went on to become a painter, architect, and engineer. He is most famous for his book on artists, but it is hard to go anywhere in Italy without a Vasari sighting, whether it is a monumental painting, an aqueduct, or Th Vasari portico. The house...
