This is a great place to view the all area, you can park outside of the city, and use the escalators to get there.

Having a house here we take all our visitors to admire the Belvedere. The panorama is outstanding and as the sesons change, so does the view. However, an even better view of the valley can be had from the very top of the hill, around the side of Santa Margarita church,

Was here on a beautiful, windy day. So many great views in Cortona; they keep getting better as you climb, but this one is just around the corner from restaurants and gelato shops.
