Casa del Petrarca
Reduced Admission Ticket
"Petrarca's house" in addition to being a monument of itself, offers a path dedicated to the personality of Francesco Petrarca. The building, which dates back to the twelfth century, still retains most of its original fourteenth-century structures, despite the previous restorations and renovations with the addition of the loggia dated XXVI century. In the 16th century the rooms were frescoed with a cycle inspired by the most famous works of Petrarca: "Il Canzoniere" and "Africa". Petrarca moved there in 1369 and decided to restore the pre-existing construction, adapting it to its needs and personally following the works, and he lived in this house till his death. From 1374, when Petrarca died, several owners succeeded, but no one made substantial changes to the house. Pleasant walk on the garden.
