Made famous by the blockbuster movie "Under The Tuscan Sun", the Hill Town of Cortona really is one of a kind.
The town was founded by an ancient civilization called the "Etruscans", who were in Tuscany long before the Roman Empire was built.
A Local Saying Goes:
" Cortona e' la nonna di Roma ", which translated means : " Cortona is the grandmother of Rome ".
The 3 Squares:
-"Piazza del Comune" , the town hall square and city center.
-"Piazza Signorelli", with its beautiful Theatre and its famous medieval festival called "Giostra dell'Archidado" (The Joust Of The Crossbow), taking place every year in June.
-"Piazza Garibaldi" with its breathtaking view over the "Valdichiana" valley.
Tuscany is one of the most sought after Europe destinations today, with the famous Renaissance City of Florence for capital.
The cypress trees, the hill towns, the farmhouses and the gorgeous food is just a fraction of the beauty and due to its iconic landscape, the italian region has become a Brand in every respect according to the international travel scene.
Famous for the epic “Battle of Hannibal”, this two-million- year old lake has no river flowing in or out of it, yet it is one of the most beautiful in Italy. Guarded by peaceful little harbors and medieval citadels, “Lake Trasimeno” sits in a picturesque environment, surrounded by olive trees. A romantic slice of Umbria, with a unique set of islands to explore, and wonderful dishes to taste, like the rare “Fagiolina del Trasimeno”, or the mythical “Carpa Regina In Porchetta”, a roast carp,stuffed with lard, fennel and garlic.
