Cortona-Under The Tuscan Sun

During our stay at Il Falconierie in Cortona, we came across Frances Mayes, the author of the book Under the Tuscan Sun which made the city famous, but it was put on the map by the Etruscans, who’ve left tombs everywhere around the hill Cortona is built upon.

The city is charming, romantic and sweet with amazing views of Valdichiana and the Tuscan hills. We even found an underground well in one shop containing fish.
