The Local View
The picturesque hilltop village of Cortona is featured by Frances Mayes in the bestselling novel titled 'Under the Tuscan Sun' which was then made into a successful movie. Everything here is so enchanting! You must try La Loggetta Rertaurant, in Piazza della Pescheria, for typical Tuscan cuisine under the ancient vaulted loggia. Visit one of the many village markets for a real taste of Italy's authentic lifestyle and make sure you don't miss any of the food sagre (local food festivals) organised during the summer and autumnal months.
