The Tuscany region
Tuscany is one of Italy best-loved regions. It combines a beautiful countryside reminiscent of the landscapes of Renaissance masterpieces, a rich artistic heritage including exquisite art and architecture, a glorious history, excellent wines and delicious food.
Set down between the blue-green Apenines and the turquoise Tyrrhenian Sea, Tuscany is the joyful heart and soul of the ancient Etruscan civilisation which lives on in every city, town and village.
Every town offers unique characteristics, charm, and regional cuisine making each one worthy of your time.
Tuscany is also well known for its splendid landscapes with charming low hills covered with olive groves, vineyards, woods, isolated cypress trees, and beautiful old farmhouses, all part of a landscape that seems to have been carefully tended since the dawn of time. Tuscany is a refuge for the spirit as well as an ideal place for rambles or for idle contemplation of views that have not changed in centuries.
The castles and country churches are a standing order for the many visitors to Tuscany from all over the world.
Tuscany is also the home for the famous wines of Chianti and Montalcino.
There is so much to discover in this region that the above are just a few of the reasons why people enthusiastically return year after year and share their experiences with others.
Cortona is a town and comune in the province of Arezzo, in Tuscany, Italy. It is the main cultural and artistic center of the Val di Chiana.Cortona is surrounded by Etruscan walls, around 3000 years old. It retains much of its history through its architecture, layers of history built upon the Etruscan core. The plain below Cortona is speckled with Etruscan tombs. But Cortona isn't just about the past; Cortona's thriving Expat community is quite involved with the city, so a tourist speaking only English will feel welcome--and have interesting things to do.
Yes, Cortona is the setting for "Under the Tuscan Sun." People I've talked to who live here can't really explain their attraction to friends who've never lived in Italy. Waking up, throwing open the shutters to the slant of sun in a piazza where merchants are setting up for business, having your morning cappuccino in a bar where the barista knows your name!
