Cortona is a treasure to visit again and again. Seated on a hilltop
1600 feet above sea level, this ancient Etruscan town dates back to
800 BC. It is 9 miles from Lake Trasimeno, the largest lake in central
Italy, where Hannibal defeated an entire Roman legion in 217 BC. From
slightly later times, you will find one of the earliest Franciscan
monasteries founded (in 1211) by Saint Francis of Assisi. Other
treasures of art and architecture include beautiful churches, such as
“Madonna del Calcinaio”, designed by Francesco di Giorgio Martini
(1485); and the Church of the Patron Saint of Cortona – La Chiesa di
Santa Margherita – protected by the Medici Fortress, La Fortezza di
Girifalco. Don’t miss the the Museum, il Museo Diocesano –
offering works by Fra Angelico, Piero della Francesca and his pupil
Luca Signorelli, a native of Cortona. The Town of Cortona itself is a lively town full of delightful shops
selling selling locally products, wines, handmade pottery, textiles,
antique furniture, objets d’arts, designer clothes and jewelery.
There are plenty of inviting bars, restaurants, and trattorias
offering great local dishes and excellent regional wines. During the
summer months the town puts on a series of open-air concerts, opera
and chamber music ensembles, theatrical productions, an international
photo festival (Cortona On The Move), plus a variety of popular
entertainment events and food festivals.
Cortona is 65 miles south of Florence and 120 miles north of Rome, 40
miles to Siena and nearby Montalcino, and 15 miles from Montepulciano.
Only 60 miles away is Arezzo where you will want to see the Piero
della Francesca murals in the church of San Francesco, depicting the
Battle of Anghiari and the True Stations of the Cross, as well as
Perugia, Pienza and much more.
