We decided to spend our vacation in one place this year and chose Cortona as a quiet getaway from,the bigger, busier cities of Rome & Florence. Cortona was out of this world. We took the train to Camucia-Cortona and then took the bus for the 4 km ride up the mountain to Cortona. The views were incredible. Just about 50 yards down the street from the piazza where the bus stopped, we found the doorway to Rugapiana. After Massimo buzzed us in we climbed the steps up to the top floor where our rustic room awaited us.He was more than welcoming and gave us many suggestions. Stone walls and a rustic bed, with our bathrobes was very welcoming and definitely put us into the atmosphere of the city. The room also had a refrigerator. The hotel was provided breakfast coupons to be used each morning at one of the cafes just down the street. The hotel is on the only level street as the rest of the city streets are on very steep inclines.Restaurants were all wonderful and we also bought olive oil from one of the regional shops. Transportation was rather easy as we were able to take a bus to Arezzo one day, and on another take the bus back to the train for a journey to Assisi and Perugia. The view from city overlooked the valley and the Lake was also in view. One can even take an easy walk into the countryside. We were about an hour south of Florence by train.
