At 600 m. above sea level the old Etruscan town of Cortona dominates the entire Valdichiana, from Arezzo to the shores of the nearby Trasimeno Lake. It was one of the 12 towns of the Etruscan Confederation and one can still admire imposing sections of the mammoth walls, only partly modified in medieval times.
The town of Cortona is all within the city walls that are of particular archaeological and architectural importance. With its steep streets, churches and convents Cortona reflects its ancient splendor jealously conserving countless art treasures of many different periods in its museums and churches.
There are precious pieces from the Egyptian, Etruscan and Roman period in the Museo dell’Accademia Etrusca, while masterpieces by Signorelli, Beato Angelico, Severini and other famous artists can be seen in the Museo Diocesano, in the medieval churches of San Francesco and San Domenico or the renaissance churches of Santa Maria Nuova and San Niccolò.
