Location

Villa La Torre is located just a few minutes from the lovely, country town of Cortona in the province of Arezzo.

The city is a typical historical Italian town located on top of a hill. While visiting the town, one can enjoy in the splendid panoramic views of Lake Trasimeno.

Although Cortona is a small borgo, it is an ideal place for those passionate about history and culture and an authentic location for someone to immerse themselves in Italian life. We remember it as not only the filming location of the Academy Award Winning Film La Vita è Bella, but also because its roots date back to Etruscan and Roman civilizations. Visitors can spend the day in the National Archeological Park of Cortona, visit the Duomo and other various churches to learn about Cortona’s significant status throughout the Middle Ages http://ilportalecortona.it/it/cortona.php. There are also small artisanal shops where one can purchase hand made products and local gastronomical items.

Arezzo is another medieval town famous for storing paintings from Vasari and Petrarca. Arezzo is also the home of the famous medieval jousting festival La Giostra del Saracino.
