The neighborhood

Built on a hill, this stone town house is right outside the old city walls (dating from the 2nd century B.C.) of Historical Centre of Cortona, an old city founded by The Etruscans, the ancient civilization that built Rome. Cortona is conveniently located in a 1,15 hrs drive from Florence, 2 hrs from Rome and Pisa International Airports, 30 mins from Perugia (in Umbria) and Arezzo, 45 mins from Siena, 35 mins from Montepulciano, 1hr from Assisi (Umbria) e Montalcino (where the famous 'Brunello' wine comes from)...all the best sights of the famous Tuscan countryside, with yellow sunflower fields in the summer and multi colored trees in the spring!

Getting around

The closest airports are Florence (1hr 23min), Pisa (2hr 04min) and Rome (2hr 14min).

The closest train station is Cortona-Camucia (3,3 km - 6 mins by car) and I suggest you take a taxi to get to Cortona, even though there are buses too.
However, if you're able to let us know your ETA, my mom might even come to pick you up at the train station.

You don't need a car if you only want to stay in Cortona, and even if you'd like to visit surrounding cities such as Siena, Perugia, Arezzo, Firenze (Florence) etc you can just use trains or buses.
However, if you desire to rent a car, the parking is on the street in about 50/100 meters (55/109 yards) from the house, depending on where you find a spot and it's free. There's also another big parking lot right nearby, more or less the same distance.

You're in the near proximity of the centre and of all the restaurants and food stores you can find in Cortona, like 5-7 mins walking distance.

Other things to note

Cortona is famous as the inspiration and setting for the book Under the Tuscan Sun, (that later became a movie) written by USA writer-novelist Francis Mayes. It also homes a branch of the Georgia University - USA, for artistic matters, since 1970.
