Discover the iconic Tuscan town of Cortona (made famous by Frances Mayes “Under The Tuscan Sun”). Located between Florence and Rome, Cortona is a city easy to love thanks to its timeless atmosphere, its Etruscan past, the delightful medieval old town and its splendid panoramas.
Spending time walking through the streets is the main pleasure of a visit to Cortona and there are many historic buildings to admire while walking. Your visit to Cortona can start from Porta San Domenico where you can follow the Ruga Piana to reach Piazza della Repubblica. Alternatively, if you arrive in Piazzale Garibaldi, you can admire the wide views and then follow Via Nazionale to Piazza della Repubblica. The Town Hall is located in the nearby square of Piazza Signorelli, which also includes the famous 13th century Palazzo Pretoriano, whose facade was renovated in 1608 by Filippo Berrettini. Note in particular the typical medieval characters that are visible along the Via Casali on both sides of the building, which now houses the Etruscan Museum.
