Tuscany: Places to Explore

Cortona

With olive trees and vineyards creeping up to its walls, pretty Cortona—popularized by Frances Mayes's glowing descriptions in Under the Tuscan Sun—commands sweeping views over Lake Trasimeno and the plain of the Valdichiana. Its two galleries and churches are rarely visited; its delightful medieval streets are a pleasure to wander for their own sake. The heart of town is formed by Piazza della Repubblica and the adjacent Piazza Signorelli; both contain pleasant shops to browse in.
