Cortona, one of the jewels of Tuscany, rises above a valley, on the slopes of several ancient hills. Its buildings are made of sandstone and have wooden balconies which highlight the medieval streets and squares. Cortona is a town of Etruscan origin located in the mountains of the province of Arezzo. The city was founded on one of the earliest inhabited hills of the province and has wonderful ancient streets like the cities of Assisi and Volterra, which also share a similar topography. Cortona is situated not far from the border between Tuscany and Umbria. In the west, the town spreads into the Valdichiana Valley, with the extinct volcano of Monte Amiata (1738 m) in the background. Lake Trasimeno, in the region of Umbria, is visible from the higher elevations of the city. The American writer Frances Mayes bought an old house in Cortona in the nineties and totally refurbished it. Here he wrote his novel “Under the Tuscan Sun” (1996). It became a bestseller and then a film in 2003. Since then Cortona has become quite popular with tourists. The city acquired additional publicity when it served as a backdrop for some scenes in the Roberto Benigni film “La vita è bella”. Cortona has a beautiful footpath full of cafes and restaurants. In summer there are a number of activities possible here. 12 kilometers from the residence you will find Lake Trasimeno, which is like a small sea. Here there are beaches, ferries, islands, rocks and fishermen. Lake Trasimeno is one of the enchanted centers of Italy, located south of the Apennines. The Big Island, compared to Passignano, is the only inhabited island of the lake, with several dozen residents who live among the nice rocks. The island is known for its women who are adorned with expensive, almost century-old braids. Cortona is located 30 km south of the city of Arezzo, 75 km east of Siena and 115 km south of Florence.
