A thoroughly splendid afternoon with family climbing to the very top of the mountain in Cortona with a steep descent back to the Garabaldi Avenue for drinks and relaxation on a very hot early August afternoon-lovely leather goods -great buzz about it. Not to be missed if you are travelling nearby

Sit there and feel in the air the life of Cortona and the people walking by and talking. Watch life goes on. Do not rush and enjoy it

We loved the view from Piazza Garibaldi. It is one of the best views overlooking the countryside below Cortona.

Cortona is really so breathtaking that seeing the panorama for this Piazza is just the icing on the cake...Just lovely, looming clouds and ancient vistas...can't get much better.

Cortona is crowded, and it is also a typical beauty of a Tuscan town. I will long remember the plaza and the view from the town wall. I will also remember the local restaurants trying to sell us the cheap "tourist wine" at inflated prices and some of the locals irritation with the waves of tourists. Still, I'd go back.... More

At the main entry to this wonderful mountaintop town in Tuscany sits the Piazza Garibaldi. Stop and take in the amazing views of Camucia below and the wider expanses across to Lake Trasimeno and Montepulciano in the distance. Truly magnificent.

This is where to sit catch your breath and take in the view of the whole Val di Chiana. When you are refreshed you can then walk into town on the only flat street get a gelato and enjoy Cortona
