What to see in Cortona in a day
Antico Borgo San Lorenzo offers apartments in the heart of Tuscany and is an ideal place for those wishing to discover the beauty of the region. On this page you will find our guide to a day in Cortona, the medieval town that is a must-see during your stay at Antico Borgo San Lorenzo. Discover also what to see and do in Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano e Siena.
From the Antico Borgo San Lorenzo it is possible to visit the town of Cortona, a medieval jewel of Romanesque origin in the province of Arezzo. The success of the novel ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ by Francis Meyes, which was made into a film in 2003 starring Diane Lane and Raoul Bova, helped to make Cortona known throughout the world. Frances, the novel’s protagonist, moves to Cortona to rebuild her life.
The centuries-old charm of the Tuscan town, however, goes far beyond Meyes’ novel: Cortona has ancient beauty and modern marvels, which coexist in the town’s picturesque medieval setting.
