The appealing town is perched on a steep hill 650 meters above sea level. You will reach it by a winding road leading upwards through olive groves, wineries, monasteries and churches. Before entering the town gate, do turn around to enjoy the magnificent view extending beyond the lovely Lake Trasimeno.

Cortona is one of the oldest cities in Tuscany.

Its Etruscan past is witnessed by remains of houses found in the foundations of the city walls. The town centre must be visited by foot – the lanes and alleys are very steep and narrow.

Local craftsmen sell their products – ceramics and water paintings – from shops in the town.

The Museo Diocesano houses several masterpieces from the period between the 13th and the 16th century e.g. by artists like Angelico, Cortona-born Luca Signorelli and Duccio.
