Cortona, Palazzo Comunale and Piazza della Repubblica
Tuscany

In ancient times, Cortona was founded by the Umbri. Later on it was occupied by the Etruscans, the Romans, Goths etc. It finally became part of the Kingdom of Italy. Cortona is a very fine town that kept its medieval character. It is located on a hillside and the streets in the old centre are narrow and steep.

More About Tuscany

The Tuscany, one of the most beautiful Italian regions, is known throughout the world for its Landscapes and for the Works of Art that it houses (It is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance). Six localities have been designated World Heritage Sites: the Historical Center of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Pienza, the Square of the Cathedral of Pisa with the Leaning Tower and the Val d'Orcia. It is in the central Italy and borders with Emilia Romagna (north), Marche and Umbria (east) and Lazio (South). The West coast is bathed from the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Sea; here we can find the islands of the Tuscan archipelago including the island of Elba. The regional capital is Florence and the other provinces are: Arezzo, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena.
