Welcome to Cortona, a small and friendly town in Valdichiana, in the province of Arezzo.

This beautiful town, surrounded by walls in which Etruscan and Roman features are still visible, was built on a hill that reaches an altitude of about 600 meters. This elevated position guarantees an excellent view from various points of the city, allowing you to admire the beautiful landscapes of the Valdichiana, and also seeing Lake Trasimeno.
