You figure it must be an important destination, since it is named after Garibaldi. There are other Garibaldi squares sprinkled through the towns in Italy. The Italians must love the guy:) There are beautiful views from there, so even if your time is limited, it is worth taking a look. We even saw cars parked there, not really sure what... More

This is the setting for the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" but, like the story itself, it is real, and it is Autentico. A word of caution, you may only take your vehicle into the walled city in daylight hours. And never into the Piazza. The whole town cries out "Stay"

A hidden gem, the whole town is amazing. Situation on the top of a hill with spectacular views of the wonderful country side.

Cortona is a lovely place to visit. The Piazza has great views, nice shopping, and plenty to eat. I'd recommend a day trip at the least. It's worth visiting.

One of the best places to visit, lots to see, but also lots of tourists too. Traveling in the summer in Italy be prepared to be surrounded by a lot of tourists. But everything is open too. The Piazza has plenty of cafe's around to pop in for an Espresso, art galleries and churches. We walked to all of them.

You simply must get a photo from this beautiful vista. Lake Trasimano in the the distance where you can see the place Hannibal brought the elephants to "greet" the Romans. Start at the top of the hill at the Basilica and walk down the streets of Cortona, ending in Piazza Garibaldi.

This was the place to meet my friends, for a Cappucino or Vino Rossi depending on the time of day. The ristorante overlooked a charming tree-filled park, complete with fountain, where we went for picnics - a nice cheap way of eating. Cars could park in the piazza, so it was a good drop-and-go place, The view was splendid -... More
