You've heard people say that a town is unspoiled, well I think Cortona is spoiled. It's a nice town, but it's not my favorite. There are so many Americans studying and living here, that sometimes it's hard to find any Italians. When I visited, they were filming "Under the Tuscan Sun" with Diane Lane and there were lots of Hollywood people milling about. This probably did not help my opinion of the place. The town is pretty, however I do not intend to make another trip to Cortona,
I guess I've seen enough.
- Pros:Pretty town with nice Architecture
- Cons:Far from everything else, lots of Americans, and nothing special
- In a nutshell:Only if you have lots of time on your hands
