Local information

  • Cortona, Tuscany

Additional information

  • Cortona is the Tuscan hill town made famous by Francis Mayes in her book Under the Tuscan Sun. Surrounded by 3,000 year old Etruscan walls, much of this history of the town is maintained through the varied architecture. With beautiful views over the Val di Chiana and towards lake Trasimeno, Cortona is an attractive place to spend some time. Worth visiting are the Church of the Madonna del Calcinaio painted by Francesco di Giorgio Martini, (1485-1513), the Palazzo Comunale and Palazzo Casali which house the Museo dell'Accademia Etrusca, and the Museo Diocesano with works by Signorelli, Beato Angelico, Sassetta, Lorenzetti, etc.
