For those who reach Cortona from the main road, leading straight to Via Nazionale (the main street of Cortona, open to traffic only midnight to 8am), stopping in the round Piazza Garibaldi is a must before getting into the ancient town. Spend here just a few minutes watching the view over the valley: if the day is clear you can... More

A welcoming statue welcomed us to Old Town Cortona as it is the entrance to the Old Town. Great views from there. Our hotel was right there.

It is small with with a fabulous view and you may be able to realize which photos are of Cortona. I am on my way back in 3 days for... More

This Piazza is at the top of the escalators/ steps from the main car park and the way into Cortona for most people arriving by car.

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
