We had a good time. Nice old buildings, shops, restaurants and Musea. If you like culture mixed with good wine and food this is the place to be.

For sure, you deserve it, after all the climbing done. But this is really worth it. Quaint cathedral and « castle » and if you are lucky, a medieval event during August.

We had a great experience using a company in Cortona for our visits around Tuscany. “Together in Tuscany”. Check out their website and contact them. They will do a great job putting visits around the area together for you.
