If you are not acquainted with Cortona, a brief description is merited. This town has re-earned its fame since the later days of the Renaissance as one of the main cultural and historical sites of Tuscany in the area between Florence and Siena. Its earliest beginnings were during the pre Roman period of the Etruscans, and is widely believed to be one of the main religious and political centers of the Etruscan empire, starting about 500 BC. It is one of the very few towns in all of Tuscany, if not the only town, where the original Etruscan stone fortifications still are intact and encompass the actual boundaries of this very vibrant community of international fame, Cortona. What survives in the Italian town of Cortona is 2,500 years of history, and a architectural/cultural history spanning principally from the Etruscan/Roman, Medieval, Renaissance periods, to the Baroque period. For such a small town in Tuscany, this is one of the most significant and architecturally intact Tuscan villages in all of Italy. This apartment has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a single living room with fireplace and kitchenette. It is located on the 2nd floor of the main structure facing Corsa Italia, with adequate sunlight and is air conditioned.

This apartment is situated in the heart of Cortona, and is 3 kilometers (5 miles) to the train station where you can arrive in Rome in 21/2 hrs, 11/2 hour to Florence, 40 minutes to Arezzo, and 30 minutes to Castiglion Fiorentino, about the same time with a car. Perugia is about 30-40 minutes by car, and Siena is about an 11/2 hour driving time by car.
