Well worth visiting

A fine location and more interesting than we'd expected, especially the exhibition of recent and contemporary sculpture.

We visited the Museo Michelangiolesco years ago and still recall it with joy. Who knew that such an interesting museum existed in such a small town, incidental birthplace of a great Renaissance artist. But the sculpture garden, overlooking the next valley, is the best part. Felicita'

This is an atmospheric spot, interesting enough to wander round, but don't expect too much from the Michelangelo connection. There is a display of furniture contemporary with the artist and a collection of small pieces of sculpture that show the master's influence. When we were there, an exhibition of modern paintings was being installed. The Museo is worth a diversion... More

Whilst he and his parents left the place long before he began his career as one the greatest of renaissance... More

They rely on the fact that this famous person , michelangelo, is born here. But he left this place when he was 6 months, and did leave and traces behind here. He just was born here but did not grow up here.

A beautiful ride up to Caprese ( definitely avoid going via the provincial highway). The town includes the church where Michelangelo was baptized (closed) and the house where he was born and remains of a fort his father was responsible for. All the Michelangelo work consist of plaster replicas of some of his statues and works done by other artists... More

A lovely way to see Caprese Michelangelo and it was interesting to find out a little more behind this legendary artist having already viewed his work in Florence. The very reasonable entry fee gives you the chance to see not only his house and casts of a lot of his work, but also his garden, with incredible views over the... More

Caprese Michelangelo is the small town where Michelangelo was born and lived in his early years. It is a pleasant hour drive from Arezzo through beautiful countryside, passing by Anghiari which is a charming town well worth a visit. The Casa Natale di Michelangelo (his birthplace) is charming and low key. If you are in the area and have time,... More
