Tuscany (Toscana)-Cortona

August 17, 2018

Cortona is a medieval town in the province of Arezzo, in Tuscany. It is a cultural and artistic center whose standing as a tourist destination has intensified since the publication of Frances Mayes's book 'Under the Tuscan Sun' which is set there. Cortona's current good fortune in attracting large numbers of tourists can be attributed in large part to Frances Mayes. The town is encircled by defensive walls dating to the Etruscan period and medieval houses pack the slopes.
