We got in just before it was about to close. The outside of the church is fascinating. It consists of three "stacks" of columns and arches. In the inside is an altar piece by Pietro Lorenzetti. Well worth a visit.

A magnificent Abbey in the heart of the historical centre of the town. While you're there, please take the time to cross the street and visit Casa Museo Ivan Bruschi as well.

A gem of Tuscany! One of the most beautiful churches, a must-see if you're going to Arezzo. I believe that "Life is beautiful" was filmed here.

It felt real Italy to me when I stepped inside. Very subjective I admit. There may be specifics I enjoyed, yet it was the place as a whole that I write this compliment for.
