Piazza della Repubblica
Sooner or later, if you spend some time in the town, you're going to end up here.
It's a hub of activity with students from the nearby bible college drifting in and out and with municipal buildings nearby it seems there's always something happening.
Its proximity to the also-busy Piazza Signorelli where the Palazzo Communale is located also helps make this the vibrant area of the town.
This piazza gets more sun and thus seems to attract more people.
A Perfect Tuscan Experience
"One of my favourite places to be..."
I have always idealized Italy and its particularities. I studied the language in University, I dreamed of studying at my University's 'campus' in Cortona, I revelled in the cooking style, I read the books... and I dreamed.
One of the places that epitomizes Italy to me is Cortona.
I have not travelled a great deal but I have travelled to Cortona on both of my trips to Italy and stayed nearly five days each time.
Even a town as small as Cortona has many secrets, which take time to reveal. There are many nooks and crannies to be explored. Many roads to walk. Meals to enjoy. And time to spend.
