What travelers are saying
- Visiting this sacred place made me look into my innerself. I was impressed by the way the six resident Franciscan monks carry out their mission and their daily life. May God bless them for all the good they do to our society.Written September 2, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Cortona is a very charming small town and this piazza is it centerpiece. I enjoyed seeing the local folks hanging out here and it made for a relaxed and memorable experience.

- One of my favorite places to visit are older churches. This one did not disappoint. But, to be honest, it was a little creepy to see Santa Margherita in a glass coffin up front! Might let your kids know beforehand!Written April 22, 2023
- An extremely good and detailed museum that covers an imposing range of periods in the towns history. It also has a good collection of Egyptians artifacts - mummies etc.
We spent over 2 hrs - well worth it.Written June 26, 2023
- We had some hesitation about visiting this museum, but we are all glad we did. The museum features outstanding paintings from Cortona's own artists from 14th Century to the 20th Century. Very doable in 60-90 minutes.Written September 29, 2021
- A wine that you can truly tell is made with passion, by a wine maker who calls on his life experiences, culture and knowledge from his grand farther in making the variety of beautiful wines produced at Leuta. Supper friendly, kind and unique charm is felt from every interaction with the owner Denis and his charming staff. Highly recommended!Written September 13, 2023
- We decided to visit this small family run winery after reading the glowing reviews and we were not let down. The winemaker, Edoardo, showed us his vineyards and welcomed our questions. We then visited the wine cellar where a wonderful table was laid out for the tasting. We enjoyed the delicious food that Patrizia (mom) prepared—especially the eggplant! After enjoying 4 good wines and 1 dessert wine we purchased a bottle each of the Sole and the Gallo. Edoardo is working on a new tasting room and should have it completed sometime next year. We met Edoardo’s father and brother as well but missed his sister (who designs the labels). If you want the experience of visiting with a hospitable and genuine family who is dedicated to the winemaking process, this is the place for you!Written October 9, 2023
- This is a beautiful small winery with a very friendly and enthusiastic team. Our hostess was wonderful. She led us through the tour and then the 'blending experience' where we got to experiment with various syrah samples from aging techniques. Each of us got to create our own blend. Finished with a great lunch prepared by the owner. Fantastic!

- I think you can see all the way to Rome from here....just kidding..but it is a magnificent panorama at least back to Montepulciano.Written October 22, 2019
- Cortona Cathedral, dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, was built at the remains of the ancient Roman temple in the 11th century. Little is left of its original Romanesque character, because of the several renovations and refurbishments. Although most of its treasures today lies in the Museo Diocesano, the church is worth visiting, for several canvases made by Berettini and disciples of Signorelli.Written September 26, 2018
- Amazing location, beautiful church with a nice bell tower and cloister. Inside you can see a fragment of the Holy Cross and some objects belonged to San FrancescoWritten November 6, 2023
- Fabulous photos of women ...start at the fortress and work your way down..you may need a couple of days...well worth it.Written August 13, 2018
