Cortona ©
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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Indiana Park Amiata and Azienda Agricola Leuta. Family-friendly places like Spiaggetta di Masi Michele and Spiaggia di Capodimonte will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Cortona: Tenuta Valdipiatta (in Montepulciano), Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona (in Castelnuovo dell'Abate) and Cellere (Chiesa di Sant'Egidio & Borgo di Pianiano a Cellere). And it doesn't end there: explore the fascinating underground world of Belvedere di Cortona, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Duomo di Cortona, contemplate the long history of Eremo Le Celle, and admire the masterpieces at Palazzo Ducale di Urbino.

For other places to visit, photos, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Cortona road trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Perugia San Francesco d'Assisi – Umbria International Airport, Peretola Airport and Federico Fellini International Airport. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
