Cortona

Cortona holidays

Surrounded by old walls, Cortona is a pocket of terracotta-topped buildings with plenty of Etruscan history to uncover. From here, you can stare out across the magnificent hillsides of eastern Tuscany. No wonder it was the setting of best-selling novel Under the Tuscan Sun!

Sensational sights

Between the Diocesan Museum and Cortona Cathedral, you’ll begin to get a sense of the resort’s past pretty fast. The Franciscan hermitage, Eremo Le Celle, is a bit different to your standard historic feature – seven friars still call this place home, so head off to explore this peaceful plot.

Fab flavours

Around the resort, you’ll have a clutch of enotecas for wine tasting, and various restaurants offer a menu of dishes using local cattle. Give both a try! But when it comes to fine dining, Il Falconiere has one Michelin star and takes you on a culinary adventure. Go beyond rustic Italian!
