Map
About the neighbourhood
From its lofty perch, picturesque and historic Cortona an Etruscan town founded around 700b.c., much of the Valdichiana and Lake Trasimeno may be surveyed: the mountains of Cetona and Amiata, and the town of Montepulciano to the south.

Cortona's excellent Etruscan museum houses fascinating and priceless relics including the 4th century B.C. 'Etruscan Chandelier'. The Diocese Museum has many works of significant artistic value, the masterpiece being Fra Angelico's 'Annuciation'.

Hidden in a cleft of Monte Sant' Egidio lies 'Le Celle' founded by Saint Francis in 1211. This peaceful, spiritual place is where the saint spent some time and where you can still see his cell. The monks here continue living their lives according to his teachings.
