Cortona rises in a dominant position between the Val Di Chiana and Tevere valleys: this Etruscan hamlet is an important Tuscan artistic and cultural centre.
Do you know Cortona? This Etruscan hamlet is still preserving its ancient walls: a very important archeologic monument.
From its 500 M.A.M.S.L, it dominates the whole Val Di Chiana valley, offering so a 180° view on Umbria, the Trasimeno Lake, and the Amiata Mountain.
The medieval aspect of its buildings and of its traditional alleys donates a very beautiful atmosphere to the town.
With the time passing, Cortona hosted many important artists: Luca Signorelli and Beato Angelico (during Renaissance), Pietro Berrettini (Baroque), and Gino Severini (Futurism). Their masterpieces are exposed at the M.A.E.C. and at the Diocesan Museum, as well as in the several churches of the historic centre.
Gabriele D’Annunzio celebrated Cortona among his “cities of silence”, while Pope Giovanni Paolo II, in 1993, described it as:
“…a beautiful town where everything talks about God: nature, mountains, woods…”
Thanks to the US writer Frances Mayes, Cortona became the subject of the best-seller known as “Under the Tuscan sun” and of its film. A thrilling autobiographic history that allowed millions of tourists to discover Cortona, turning it so into a well-known international touristic destination.
Currently, Cortona represents a strategic place from where reaching areas and towns as: Montepulciano, Pienza, the Val D’Orcia valley, Siena, the Trasimeno Lake, Orvieto, Perugia and Assisi.
Despite its tourism, Cortona still maintains its medieval charm and Etruscan heritage, mixed together to the Tuscan culture!
