There's not much to do in the Piazza. A couple places to eat, but its the first piazza you see when you walk the steps up from the parking area and its at the bottom of the city so it makes an easy place to find. Use it as a meeting place or a good starting point for exploring the... 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.

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. The views across the plain and to Lago Trasemino are stunning, so it is popular spot. There is an excellent gelataria close by with a wide range of flavours available.

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

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