Cortona is a beautiful hillside town in Tuscany. I'm am fortunate through Liz's relatives to say I now have family here. Her Aunt Melva and Uncle Giacomo have a magnificent Villa. I had heard about the Villa and seen pictures but nothing could decribe how incredible it is in person.
Their villa is set into the hills outside of the town. They have beautiful property with olive groves, fruit orchards, grapes, figs, a great pool and even a chapel on the property. Inside the house is decorated meticulously from the main floor to the third floor. I was amazed at the beautiful antique furniture and accents.*
rtona was a beautiful place to stay with wonderful food and wine. The food was heavenly especially the fresh vegetables,gelato, olive oil and cheeses. The wine was superb and we left with many bottles tucked in our suitcases. The people of Cortona are so friendly and welcoming; it was such a pleasure to be here.
- Pros:Relatives with an incredible Villa!
- Cons:We have to come home....... :(
- In a nutshell:Unbelievable Beauty...............
A good Guide book is essential to planning a good trip. I am particularly fond of DK books and the Top 10 Tuscany... more travel advice
Definitely not my airline of choice but who's to look gift tickets in the mouth. Thankfully they were free tickets... more travel advice
