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.

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.
