"If Italy is the body of art and culture in the world,
Tuscany is the heart and Cortona is its soul..."
Cortona is a small medieval hill town above the Valdichiana in eastern Tuscany. With its rural setting and rich cultural history, Cortona combines the best of traditional Tuscan life with all the conveniences of a small city.
This classic Etruscan hill town lies between Lago Trasimeno and the Appenine mountains. It is rich in archaeological wonders from the Etruscan, Roman, Medieval and Renaissance eras. During the summer, Cortona hosts numerous festivals, art exhibitions, antique markets, and gastronomic fairs.
Cortona is within easy reach of some of the most beautiful and historic Tuscan and Umbrian cities and towns, including Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Montalciano, San Gimignano, Todi, Perugia, Assisi and Gubbio.
