David, along with Federica from the Italian Wedding Event, ensured that everything about the wedding celebration was perfect. We got married at a local church, and then... More

I usually never reply to reviews because I don’t want to influence in any way the judgement of those who read it, but this time I must do so because it is only right and proper that I reply to this defamation.

Corte dei Papi was a remarkable experience for us traveling through the Tuscan region. It is absolutely a 5 star hotel and restaurant. The owner and operators, David and his mom, Gabriella, exude charm and warmth the moment you meet them. If you are looking for the magical villa, very much like Under The Tuscan Sun, this is exactly what... More

After years of talking about it, my wife and I finally had our trip to Italy. We started in a small town in Tuscany called Pergo di Cortona. We stayed at the most charming location called Relais La Corte dei Papi. The host David will make your stay very special and there is absolutely no need to look any further... More
