Guided tours of Cortona, Tuscany
My private guided walking tours of Cortona are the best way to discover the amazing beauty of this wonderful hill town, featuring the monumental architectures of its charming historic centre, the artisans and vintage shops, the many picturesque corners and scenic views, and the numerous ancient churches full of remarkable arts and relics, not to mention the town museums, which house incredible Etruscan arts and beautiful masterpieces of Renaissance painting. We may also visit the fascinating Celle Hermitage founded by St. Francis of Assisi in 1211, nestled in the woods above town, and reach Villa Bramasole, inspiration for the world famous book and movie “Under The Tuscan Sun”. All this and more shown in a highly enjoyable way combined with interesting local tales and anecdotes that are not found on guidebooks.
