Cortona is really so breathtaking that seeing the panorama for this Piazza is just the icing on the cake...Just lovely, looming clouds and ancient vistas...can't get much better.

Cortona is crowded, and it is also a typical beauty of a Tuscan town. I will long remember the plaza and the view from the town wall. I will also remember the local restaurants trying to sell us the cheap "tourist wine" at inflated prices and some of the locals irritation with the waves of tourists. Still, I'd go back. It is lovely, especially in the spring. Be sure and see the Etruscan gate.

At the main entry to this wonderful mountaintop town in Tuscany sits the Piazza Garibaldi. Stop and take in the amazing views of Camucia below and the wider expanses across to Lake Trasimeno and Montepulciano in the distance. Truly magnificent. Then walk down the main street into the Piazza della Repubblica and take in the ambience of this wonderful part of Italy.

Perched on the edge of the town with vistas as far as Lake Trasimeno, the Piazza fails miserably in the sense that it loses it charm to tons of delivery trucks coming and going, cars parked, vendors....and more. It is also located on a busy intersection of roads that goes up, down, left and right. Not quite the piazza that I expected to see. Val d'Chiana is a crowded metropolitan area so the views below are really not that spectacular.
