Cortona — 10 nights

The hilltop town of Cortona gained international attention as the subject of the 2003 film "Under the Tuscan Sun." With the Chiana Valley and Lake Trasimeno as its backdrop, Cortona is one of Tuscany's hotspots for art and culture.
Popular historic sites such as Historic Centre of San Gimignano and Oratorio di San Giovanni Battista are in your itinerary. Step off the beaten path and head to Arezzo Cathedral and Basilica of Saint Ubaldo. Explore Cortona's surroundings by going to Siena (Museo dell'Opera Metropolitana, Duomo di Siena, &more), Castello di Brolio (in Gaiole in Chianti) and Palazzo Piccolomini (in Pienza). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Terme Bagno Vignoni, take in the spiritual surroundings of Antico Ghetto e Sinagoga Pitigliano, explore the historical opulence of Rocca del Leone, and make a trip to Piazza del Castello di Montemerano.

To find other places to visit, maps, photos, and more tourist information, read our Cortona trip itinerary maker website.

Getting from Rome to Cortona by car takes about 2.5 hours. Other options: take a train. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Tue) to allow time for travel to Castel di Tora.

Italy travel guide

4.6
Italy is a land of high fashion, fine art, exquisite architecture, luxury sports cars, outstanding cuisine--and an insatiable taste for "la dolce vita." It's also home to the greatest number of World Heritage Sites in the world, making it an ideal place for your next holiday. The country boasts a varied landscape of mountain ranges, alpine lakes, and coastal towns, so it's no wonder travelers often refer to it as the bel paese (beautiful country). With so many places to visit, visitors often have a difficult time planning their itinerary. The smaller villages each feature a distinct character and a blend of architecture, art, and cuisine. In the country, you'll find countless archeological sites dating back to Roman times and beyond. The country's cities and seaside resorts are cosmopolitan powerhouses with museums, galleries, restaurants, shops, open-air markets, and pedestrian-friendly historic areas.
