Cortona and surrounding
Full of restaurants, coffee shops e independent shops, Cortona is a must-see Tuscan destination, reflecting the authentic culture of this famous Italian region.
Its origins can be traced back to the ancient Etruscan civilization which inhabited central Italy long before the Romans.
On top of the existence of the world-class MAEC Museum of Etruscan Art and the heritage of the “Celle” monastery founded by Saint Francis of Assisi, the popularity of Cortona was undoubtedly broadcasted to an international audience by the book, and later movie, “Under the Tuscan Sun”, by Frances Mayes, who was inspired by Cortona for her best selling novel.
