Florence and Pisa steal the limelight for Tuscan cities, yet Cortona is a hidden gem brimming with character. Authentically Italian and undoubtedly pretty, the sleepy streets and welcoming ambiance is the perfect immersion into the local lifestyle. For true convenience, you're expertly placed to explore every part of the town. The town centre is just three minutes away, giving you instantly access to the charming cafes, restaurants and shops. Spend leisurely afternoons moseying around the quaint streets, finding chic clothing in the aisles and delicious food in the eating spots. If you wanted to keep things private and intimate, your host can arrange a private chef to rustle up some top-notch dishes at home. When the weather is warm, you can enjoy each sumptuous bite on the cute outdoor table in the garden. Even if you're not eating, the garden is a dreamy spot to spend the evening. Pick up a bottle of wine from town and share a glass or two with the beautiful view as your background.
