We arrived at Villa Marsili around 8 pm. We were greeted warmly and welcomed to Cortona. After getting our bags in the room, the gentleman at the front desk called ahead and found us a nice place for a light dinner. Parking here is free, but it is on the street. I drove about a half mile away, parked the car and never touched it again until we left.
The hotel is located on the edge of town with a view that is nothing less then breathtaking. The Villa Marsili was the second of three hotels we stayed at during this trip and it was our favorite because of the views, the people and the location to Cortona. Walking up the hill from the hotel to the center of town took us past numerous shops, restaurants and gelato shops. It really was a place for us to relax after a busy trip in Rome and a busier schedule ahead in Florence. The hotel as beautiful rooms made up of mostly antiques. The room is comfortable, except for the beds and a shower that is so small, my wife turned off the water and opened the shower door so that she could shave her legs. The hotel makes up for any low points by offering a very nice breakfast, although cooked to order eggs will cost you additional charges, The courtyard is a great place to sit with coffee and at night they offer a nice wine social. You can also intrust them to make excellent restaurant suggestions.
Overall, book with confidence. We could not have been happier with our decision to book our stay at Villa Marsili in Cortona. I'm sure you'll be writing your own amazing reviews upon your return as well.
