A week in Cortona with a 9 year old son in mid June

Hi,

We are going to Cortona for a week for a conference on June 9. Could you please help me with ideas of what to do in that area with a kid. We have been to Tuscany before, but would also like to hear what we should see in that area as adults. We will have a car. Many thanks!

Hi!

You'll find some ideas here:

tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g187894-Activiti…

cortonaweb.net/en/…top-10-attractions-cortona

Don't miss the Eremo Le Celle

Then you can go for a day trip to Arezzo.

You can take your son to Lake Trasimeno where you can go for a horse ride or rent a bike:

You and your son will enjoy the Museo Etrusca; and then he will probably enjoy going to see the nearby etruscan tombs himself. There is a wonderful park in Cortona where he may find other kids playing soccer, and there are always kids in the piazzas playing.

Thank you!

Our trip is only a couple of weeks away. I wanted to ask if there are any swimming pools we can use in the area? our hotel doesn't have one.

Thanks again!
