Arezzo, the heart of Tuscany, hides such jewels as the Abbey of Saints Flora and Lucilla, rich in history, Renaissance art and Gothic architecture. Moved within the city walls in 1196, the Gothic church began to rise in 1278, with subsequent modernizations in the 15th century, including the cloister by Giuliano da Maiano. The interior of the Badia is a Renaissance specimen, housing works by Bartolomeo della Gatta and Andrea Pozzo. Nearby is the Poggio del Drago B&B, ideal for exploring this historical and artistic marvel of Arezzo, offering an authentic stay in the Tuscan countryside.
