Arezzo, Italy


Many of the scenes from Roberto Benigni’s Oscar-winning film La Vita e Bella (Life Is Beautiful) were filmed in charming Arezzo, Italy.

The churches and their works of art are what keep this Tuscan hill town on the map: the Basilica San Francesco with Piero della Francesca’s magnificent fresco cycle; the Church of San Domenico and Cimabue’s 13th-century Crucifixion; and the Romanesque Santa Maria della Pieve with its bell tower—an emblem for the city—that has 40 windows.
