The Tuscany region

Tuscany is an area in Central Italy. Tuscany has a unique culinary tradition and is very well known for its wines-more famously Chianti! Tuscany is also known for its Artists and great paintings and sculptures, not to mention the Architectural masterpieces.

There are many reasons to visit Tuscany form the beautiful countryside, fine wine and cuisine, mountain paths for walking and cycling, the fine art and to learn the language!

Tuscany is a great destination for shopping in Italy. The larger cities for shopping are Siena and Florence with boutiques and brand name shops. The villages often focus on the weekly markets with local craftsmen who host workshops.


As you stroll along the narrow streets, into the pages of history, you will savour the ancient culture of Italian life whith every step. There are many typical little reastaurants offering genuine local cuisine and charming little shops and bars and just to stand and gaze in one of the "Piazzas" is surely an unforgetable experience.

The Cortona Summer Festival, offers a full program of artistic and cultural events, which represent the first expressions of Italian life. T he ancient town of Cortona , one of the twelve cities of the Etruscan league, is situated at 600 mts above sea level with magnificent views over the Val di chiana the most extensive valley in the apennine chain.

Substantial fragments of its primitive cyclopean defences can still be seen incorporated in the medieval walls.

The medieval atmosphere is felt in it's long narrow streets.

The Etruscan Museum displays the Etruscan chandelier known as the lamp of Cortona, one of the most celebrated bronzes of antiquity.

The work of artists such as Luca Signorelli and Fra Angelico can be seen in the diocesan museum.

In these and in the Renaissance churches of S. Maria Nuova and S. Niccolò valuable works of art are preserved. The churches are in themselves museums.

Many are the Etruscan monuments to be found in the Cortona neighbourhood. The most important medioeval buildings are the churches of S. Francesco and S. Domenico and Palazzo Casale which has a Renaissance facade. Severini's "Via Crucis" (20th century) accompanies the mistic ascent linking the inhabited centre with the sanctuary of S. Margherita which, in its turn, is overshadowed by the powerful defences of the Girifalco fortress.
