Self-catering holiday rentals in Cortona for your home stay

Cortona, in the Tuscany region of Italy, is a fascinating choice of holiday destination, thanks to its range of historic landmarks and cultural festivals, together with the idyllic countryside that surrounds it. It can trace its history back more than 1,500 years and there is lots of evidence of its varied past in the town centre. Among the main sights are the 13th-century town hall and its bell tower, the 16th-century Fortress of Girifalco and a fine selection of religious architecture. The churches range from Byzantine-style structures to grand Renaissance-era buildings, while there is also a hermitage founded by Saint Francis of Assisi. You can learn much more about the history of Cortona by touring some of the many archaeological sites just outside the town walls. A superb example of a Roman villa, a number of burial mounds and some magnificent Etruscan tombs are among the most important finds in the area. There is also a fascinating museum dedicated to Cortona's history, as well as the Diocesan Museum, which features a collection of artworks, including a pair of panels painted by Fra Angelico. There are lots of options for day trips during a holiday in Cortona, such as visits to the cities of Arezzo and Siena, bike rides in beautiful rural Tuscany and tours of the local wineries. After a day of sightseeing or relaxing in the countryside, you will find a wide selection of restaurants serving traditional Tuscan cuisine to dine at in the evening. In fact, food and wine are something of an obsession in Cortona and there are celebrations of local produce throughout the year, including festivals dedicated to wild boar, chestnuts, wild pigeon and porcini mushrooms.
