Location

Villa Verde is located just 5km from the  city walls of Cortona.

Cortona, The city is a typical historical Italian town located on a hilltop, where one can enjoy in the splendid panoramic views of Lake Trasimeno and the surrounding valley.

Cortona is ideal for those passionate about history and culture and an authentic location for someone to immerse themselves in Italian life just as Frances Mayes represents in both her bestseller and famous film Under The Tuscan Sun.  Tourists today still flock to Villa Bramasole to take a peek at the villa which inspired the American author to write her book. The University of Georgia also houses their study abroad campus in Cortona due to the city’s strong appeal towards foreigners.

Cortona has an interesting history as the city dates back to Etruscan and Roman civilizations. Visitors can spend the day in the Museo dell’Accademia Etrusca,  the National Archaeological Park of Cortona, visit the Duomo and other various churches to learn about Cortona’s significant status throughout the Middle Ages. There are also small artisanal shops where one can purchase hand made products and local gastronomical items.

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