Your journey from Rome will take you through the picturesque Tuscan countryside to Cortona, one of the most well-recognized and charming medieval walled hilltop towns in Tuscany surrounded by stunning panoramas of the fertile Val di Chiana valley. Because of its location, Cortona is a perfect day trip destination from Rome for a perfect day in Tuscany.
Cortona’s history reaches far beyond its Medieval buildings and remnants of Etruscan walls. Legends passed down from classical times whisper of mysteries of Noah’s Flood, the story of Troy, and tales of Ulysses and Pythagoras in connection to Cortona.
Aside from traditions and mysteries, historical documents reveal Cortona as a once formidable Etruscan capital, whose remnants can still be seen in its 3,000-year-old Etruscan walls and impressive artifacts showcased inside the Etruscan Academy Museum of Cortona. Cortona's ancient Etruscan name was Curtun, and it was known as Cortona in Latin when it was a Roman colony.
While in Cortona, you will enjoy free time to enjoy the lively squares and charming medieval streets lined with cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and shops that sell an abundance of local products from wine to gastronomic delights. Cortona offers a delightful opportunity to enjoy a leisurely day under the Tuscan sun.
Italy is a country with ancient roots, and these two towns are a testament to that. Arezzo has distant beginnings that extend as far back as the Paleolithic Era. Later in the 9th century BC, it became an Etruscan capital called Arretium (from which it retains its name). Over the centuries Arezzo grew and prospered into one of Tuscany’s most prominent cities possessing remarkable monuments, museums, buildings, and churches.
The critically acclaimed film “A Beautiful Life” was filmed in Arezzo, and coincidentally here is where the film’s world-famous Italian actor Roberto Benigni was also born.
From stunning architecture to elegant gold jewelry (Arezzo is one of Italy’s leading centers for goldsmiths), Arezzo will fascinate and charm you with its treasures.
While in Arezzo, you will have free time to enjoy the town and its famous Piazza Grande, the medieval piazza encircled by an eclectic assortment of beautiful Medieval and Renaissance churches, towers, and palazzi (palaces).
Food in Tuscany is always delicious as it’s a traditional local pride. You will enjoy some local cuisine at a restaurant or trattoria. Your driver can offer suggestions upon request.
