About this listing
The Capitano del Popolo is a charming and elegant apartment situated on the fourth floor of the ancient Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo, a building that played an extremely important role in the early Medieval politics of Cortona when the town was a city state. The Capitano del Popolo was the historical figure who traditionally represented the people of the city. This big palazzo overlooks the main square of the town, Piazza della Repubblica, giving a cross-section of the daily life in Cortona. The apartment has a huge bright sitting room (63 sq m) that comprises a dining area and various comfortable sitting areas, where 4 large sofas, accomodating up to 12 people, look onto the open fireplace. It is decorated with ancient prints and modern paintings. A wooden winding staircase leads you up to a loft (not suitable for children) ideal for reading and relaxing, being equipped with a comfortable sofa and a rich library. The kitchen is very well fitted. There are 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed and large wardrobe and a bedroom with twin beds. There is also a beautiful bathroom with a bath and a laundry area that has been restored exposing its original stone walls. There is also a small studio which commands a stunning view on the Chiana Valley, where an extra bed can be put on request. The Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo gives you a unique opportunity to enjoy the atmosphere of the town centre of Cortona, walking through its beautiful alleys, shoppping in the characteristic antique's shops and sipping a delicious glass of wine in one of the numerous coffee bars.

Very unique place to stay in a lovely part of Tuscany. Apartment is very large and well appointed. Once we caught our breath from the climbing of 5 flights of stairs, we were very impressed with this spacious and beautiful apartment. The views were fabulous and the location for being in the center of Cortona could not have been better. Vittorio and his staff were very helpful with settling in and checking out. If the stairs are not intimidating, great place to stay!
