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

Lots of life in this piazza... Gelato place, live music, people dancing, or just sitting and people watching!

Meeting place for locals and tourists alike. Restaurants and shops spill out to piazza. Loved the flag throwing ceremony and orchestra the next night.
