View what some claim to be the best painting in the world at Museo Civico di Sansepolcro, 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.

Tour the site and spend some time with Piero's paintings, as well as works from Matteo di Giovanni, Raffaellino del Colle, and more.
