We made Cortona our destination during the middle of our trip to Italy. We knew it wouldn't be as hectic as Rome or Florence, and welcomed the downtime. Hotel San Michele was recommended to us, and we are ever so glad! It was a wonderful stay. We upgraded our room to a spacious suite that had a wonderful view from the private terrace. It was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was what we came to expect from other hotels in Italy. Everything was fresh and hot... selection was great. We were able to walk everywhere within minutes of leaving the hotel. Cortona may be small, but there is a lot to see and do. The staff at Hotel San Michele was helpful in telling us where we might want to dine, or things we would like to see. They even knew the hours of the museum and other sights. As another reviewer noted earlier, we also parked outside the wall and walked up to the hotel. It is quite a hike, but it is a lot easier when you leave... :) We will be recommending this hotel to friends and family that will be traveling to Cortona.
