Great place to relax and people watch

What a great place to sit and people watch and the world go slowly by. Grab a coffee or a snack in one of the many cafes and bars around the central meeting square

Another beautiful gathering area, but please do something about all the cigarette butts in the beautiful Cortona. They were littered everywhere. It is awful. Smokers waste butts need to be placed in easily accessible spots. It really spoilt the whole beautiful area!

Just look over the cement railing and you will be in awe of the Tuscan landscape. It is also a meeting place top of the hill. There is an outdoor restaurant there but you can also go inside but it is in the basement

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

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

I only visited this square once. There were a couple of outdoor cafes, but best of all were the great views of Camucia and the valley. There was more traffic in this Piazza than the ones further in town.

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.
