“Stunning views over Tuscany and Lake Trasimeno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

At the main entry to this wonderful mountaintop town in Tuscany sits the Piazza Garibaldi. Stop and take in the amazing views of Camucia below and the wider expanses across to Lake Trasimeno and Montepulciano in the distance. Truly magnificent. Then walk down the main street into the Piazza della Repubblica and take in the ambience of this wonderful part of Italy.

“Views obstructed.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Perched on the edge of the town with vistas as far as Lake Trasimeno, the Piazza fails miserably in the sense that it loses it charm to tons of delivery trucks coming and going, cars parked, vendors....and more. It is also located on a busy intersection of roads that goes up, down, left and right. Not quite the piazza that I expected to see. Val d'Chiana is a crowded metropolitan area so the views below are really not that spectacular.

“The view is amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This is where to sit catch your breath and take in the view of the whole Val di Chiana. When you are refreshed you can then walk into town on the only flat street get a gelato and enjoy Cortona

“Great meeting place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Lots of life in this piazza... Gelato place, live music, people dancing, or just sitting and people watching!
