Arezzo and Cortona
Leaving from Florence at 9:00 am, we will get within an hour to Arezzo, a town that shows the marks of a very ancient history . You can have a walk in the old town which includes poet Petrarca's birthplace, Piazza Grande, the house where Guido d'Arezzo lived and of course the Basilica di San Francesco with the Piero della Francesca's frescos.
After lunch we move to Cortona, where you can appreciate the medieval town and parts of the Etruscan city wall , the museums and the incomparable panoramic view of the Val di Chiana.
The city has become famous around the world after the publication of the book Under the Tuscan Sun, and this fact has given importance to a place of Tuscany rich in attractions and historical traditions that date back to the times of the Etruscans.
The main street, via Nazionale, is the only street in the town with no gradient, and is still usually referred to by locals by its older name of Ruga Piana.
It is here where you find the concentration of the tipical shops and activities, the perfect place to join a gelato or a cappuccino on a terrace facing the valley below.
