Hotel San Michele **** - Cortona (Arezzo)
In brief Details Location Conditions Bookings
Dominating the Val di Chiana, Cortona stands on an olive-clad hill at about 600 metres above sea level. Its origins are lost in the nights of time, said to pre-date both Rome and Troy. Extensive traces of its Etruscan past emerge to document its role as one of the twelve cities of the Etruscan Confederation.

Recommended restaurants

It must be host Tonino's antipastissimo (an incredible variety of delectables). You can enjoy the view of the Chiana Valley and savour a Chianina steak quietly.
