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

From the free car park at the bottom of the town, its very tricky to park in Cortona, you have a few steps but you can reach the first square, Piazza Garibaldi, by a couple of conveniently placed escalators. There are a couple of nicely placed eateries around the square, but the best thing is the panoramic view, one of... More

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

Beautiful place to gather for sunrise and sunset. The perfect place to overlook the valley leading up to Cortona

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
