Cortona is a medieval town situated high above the plains of the valdichiana, wherever you go in Cortona you are surrounded by history from the paving stones that you walk upon to the etruscan stones in the ancient city walls which protected its generations past from more hostile visitors! The main thoroughfare, Via Nazionale(where Bar 500 is located!) is the only flat street in the historical centre, here is where you will find the best choice of shops and businesses, in the early evening it is then transformed for the hour of the "Passeggiata".

Cortona also has a great deal of other attractions including the Duomo(Cathedral), the small Museo Diocesano opposite with its superb art collection like the "Annunciazione" of Beato Angelico, and the highly regarded MAEC(Etruscan museum) with its collections of Etruscan and Roman artifacts., Cortona is also home to many splendid churches spanning many periods.
