We loved the view from Piazza Garibaldi. It is one of the best views overlooking the countryside below Cortona.

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.

“Even the crowds fail to dampen my enthusiasm”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

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.
