Cortona : Michelin's recommendations
Standing on a hill planted with olive groves and cypress trees, Cortona forms a natural balcony offering fine views of the Val di Chiana and ake Trasimeno. As early as the 14C, the town was an artistic centre attracting artists such as Fra Angelico, Luca Signorelli, the architect Domenico Bernabei (known as Il Boccadoro), Pietro da Cortona, and Gino Severini, a member of the Futurist movement. Today, life in this lively medieval town centres on Piazza Repubblica and Piazza Signorelli.
