Museo Civico, Sansepolcro
(4/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
View what some claim to be the best painting in the world at Museo Civico, a small museum that proves an unexpected gem. Though size of the structure itself does not impress much, the museum's collection of artwork, displayed through 10 halls, is exceptional in scope. Here, you can view "The Resurrection," a fresco by Piero della Francesca that writer Aldous Huxley named the world's greatest painting in 1925. Tour the site and spend some time with Piero's paintings, as well as works from Matteo di Giovanni, Raffaellino del Colle, and more.

And then Piero that there is the central panel of the triptych: went on vacation in Milan for Christmas (and there is a modest photographic reproduction), two fragments of frescoes and the sublime resurrection is being restored, covered in part by the inevitable scaffold for restorers. More is not there.-Bah. However, staff is extremely knowledgeable, courteous and helpful.
