Walking along the via of Arezzo, one can walk up to the Hill and visit the Duomo of San Donato. A first cathedral of Arezzo was built on the nearby Pionta Hill, over the burial place of Donatus of Arezzo, martyred in 363. In 1203...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

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.

Nice place as all the city of Arezzo is, during Xmas time is extremely easy to feel the ancient age all around you.

The Cathedral was impressive in its relative simplicity. Not too much gilt and decoration but still had a sense of tranquillity and reverance.

The building is impressive from the outside and beautiful on the inside. Closed for lunch we came back and were glad we did. While inside, organ music emanated from a chapel which compelled us to sit and contemplate while marveling at the sounds. Unfortunately I...More
