As most churches and cathedrals go in Europe this is on the small size but it is every bit as eloquent and worth a quick visit. The view from outside the church is also spectacular. We went inside and there was a wedding in progress at 5:00 on a Wednesday and much to our surprise it was being conducted by... More

The duomo in Cortona is well worth a visit as it is smaller than most in the bigger cities and so more accessible. The interior is richly decorated and if you can then join one of the regular concerts and recitals there. The view from the outside over the surrounding countryside is spectacular especially in the evening.

For us the defining feature of this beautiful church is the display of St. Francis' robe and bible- amazing!

This is a really nice church. It's in a great condition. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but once you enter, it's a great surprise. The ceiling is not too full of paintings, but even at a glance has a certain balance, a harmony to it. Some of the frescoes have a weird looking Jesus on them though.... More

You get to the top by Car where you see this huge Holy Place. Its also a good place to park your car and walk down to Cortona. It takes around 30 minutes and you get to know Cortona thoroughly passing the University of Georgia's Faculty of Art. You also have a fantastic view of Lake Trasimeno and surrounding Villages....

This was another beautiful cathedral. But no crowds. We could take our time and enjoy the building and surrounding countryside.

Peaceful and not crowded. Not sure about the saint's relics - strange to see. You can drive up there but the hike is a good one with stations of the cross along the way. Inspiring.
