Travel Blogs from Cortona

On Top of the Hill

A travel blog entry by mamakass


Think Captain Corelli's Mandolin or Under the Tuscan Sun; both come to mind when describing our experience in Cortona. The narrow streets and the piazzas are like movie sets. While it was in the 90's here we managed to take in most of the major sites together and then I found time in the afternoon to hike up to the duomo at the top of the city …

Under the Tuscan Sun in Cortona

A travel blog entry by michncam


After breakfast, we grabbed the small poster map of Cortona and Fodor's Tuscany book and began exploring the town. We were blessed with good weather - mild and slightly overcast, good for walking. Did I mention the hills? Fodor's describes it perfectly. "Cortona's steep streets make you pay for your pleasure, but any amount of puffing and panting …

San Gimignano to Cortona

A travel blog entry by michncam

We added spinach and tomato paste to some of the potato to make them green, red and white. Our second ...

Italian Birthday Adventures

A travel blog entry by elaineandtom


In the morning, after checking out, we drove a few miles down the road to a winery. We had a great tour and learned all about how they grow the grapes and care for them. Probably more information than I wanted to know, but Tom really enjoyed it. We then tasted several of their wines with some local food. I enjoyed this part the best. :). On the way to Montalcino we made a couple of stops. First we stopped in Cortona and walked around the town. It was a typical ...

    The service was very good and location was in the heart of Cortona. Internet was available but not included which was somewhat annoying. Accomodations were very comfortable and clean.
