Walk down the Via Nazionale through the small parking lot to the wall, and you will be treated to one of the most beautiful views in all of Tuscany. Breathe in...

“Starting point to dicscover Cortona”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2013

The piazza grande's name is originally Piazza della Repubblica and is the biggest place in Cortona, very central, surrounded by restaurants, nice shops and the Palazzo Comunale, the town hall. Very nice an central, good starting point to explore all the side streets and places of interest. Cortona is a very scenic ancient etruscan city and deserves a visit

“Enjoy a delicious icecream and e splendit view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2013

The prevailing character of Cortona’s architecture is medieval with steep narrow streets situated on a hillside, embracing a incredibal view of the whole of the Valdichiana. From the Piazza Garibaldi is a fine prospect of Lake Trasimeno (scene of Haibal's ambush of the Roman army in 217 BC, Battle) and Umbria. Parts of the Etruscan city wall can still be seen today as the basis of the present wall. A nice park is only a 100m away and at the end of the Via Nacionale ther is a delicious gelateria.
