Nice for an hour to walk around and see the house and sculptures. The scenery is great and it is nice to visit the beautiful house but do not expect to see real art, just some mockups.

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...More
