    Cortona is a small welcoming town in the Valdichiana, in the province of Arezzo.
    The city, enclosed by a wall where Etruscan and Roman tracts are still visible, was built on a hill, which reaches about 600 meters in height. This elevated position guarantees an excellent view from different points of the city, which allows you to admire the splendid landscapes of the Valdichiana, also seeing Lake Trasimeno.

    The center of Cortona develops around the Piazza della Repubblica, which overlooks the Palazzo Comunale.
    The city is small, but offers several interesting things to visit, including the Diocesan Museum (in which a beautiful table of the Annunciation by Fra Angelico is kept) and the MAEC (Museum of the Etruscan Academy and the City of Cortona), in the which are exhibited, among other things, many finds from the different Etruscan areas of the area. At the museum you can get information on visits to the Archaeological Park of Cortona.

    Do not miss a visit to the beautiful Sanctuary of Santa Margherita, patron saint of the city, and to the Fortress of the Girifalco. Both are located on the highest point of the hill, which can be reached by walking, keeping in mind that the path is short enough, but all uphill. Following the path that runs along the city walls, you can also enjoy beautiful views of the surroundings. The Fortress of the Girifalco, built for military purposes, has undergone important changes over the centuries and is currently only partially accessible.

    Several small shops selling handicrafts and local gastronomy are located on the main streets of the center of Cortona. In the area excellent wines are produced (we are also a few kilometers from Montepulciano and Montalcino) and there is no shortage of wine bars.
    In the city there are several restaurants, mostly oriented towards traditional local and Tuscan cuisine (in the Valdichiana Chianina is bred, one of the most ancient and quality Italian cattle breeds).

    Just outside the walls of Cortona, there is the Franciscan hermitage Le Celle, the first convent built by San Francesco d 'Assisi in 1211, in which today a small community of friars lives. Over the centuries the hermitage has undergone several renovations and extensions, during which the small cell of San Francesco has been preserved, which can still be visited today.

    In summer in Cortona the Tuscan Sun Festival is organized, an exhibition dedicated to art in which international stars and artists participate every year.

The Palio di Siena is a passionate horse race that takes place every year, in July and August and its origins seem to date back to the seventeenth century.

    According to legend, Siena was founded by Senio, son of Remo, and in the city there are several statues depicting the mythical Romulus and Remus suckled by the she-wolf. Piazza del Campo has been the central nucleus of Siena since Roman times, which had their forum here.
    The square was repaved during the Government of the Nine, a semi-democratic group in power between 1287 and 1355, with a division into nine sections in memory of the Government and symbolizes the cloak of the Madonna that protects the city.

    The Campo is dominated by the red Palazzo Pubblico and its tower, called Torre del Mangia. The Palazzo Pubblico, as well as the Cathedral of Siena, was built during the Government of the Nine, which was the period of maximum economic and cultural splendor of Siena. The Palazzo still houses the offices of the Municipality, similarly to Palazzo Vecchio in Florence. From the internal courtyard of the Palace you enter the Civic Museum and the Torre del Mangia, on top of which, climbing the 500 steps, you can enjoy a splendid view of the city.

    The Civic Museum houses some of the most beautiful paintings of the Sienese school. The Sala del Concistoro offers one of the most beautiful works by Domenico Beccafumi, who frescoed the ceilings by painting the cycle of public virtues. In the Sala del Mappamonto and in the Sala della Pace (or Sala dei Nove) then there are real masterpieces: the great Majesty and the equestrian portrait of Guidoriccio da Fogliano at the siege of Montemassi by Simone Martini and the Allegories of Good and Bad Government by Ambrogio Lorenzetti, considered one of the major pictorial cycles of the Middle Ages.
