Tuscany is undoubtedly regarded as the tourist mecca of Italy. Known as Bella Toscana, it is located in the centre of Italy, just 220km north of Rome.
Boasting Florence as its capital city, it is renowned for its arts, museums, culture and beauty.
The area that we love and know so well is the famous hillside town of Cortona along with the surrounding Val d'orcia region. Cortona is a small medieval hill town lying between Lago Trasimeno and the Appennino mountains.
Combining all the advantages of a small city rich in history and archaeological wonders dating back to the Etruscan, Roman and Renaissance eras, it still retains the best of traditional rural Tuscan life.
It is also a fantastic location for discovering the hidden gems of Tuscany and Umbria. With an endless list of small towns, all achievable as day trips through the picture postcard rolling hills of Tuscany, you will feel you have discovered the real Tuscany you came to see and enjoy.
