Cortona- Castiglion Fiorentino and surroundings – what to visit in Tuscany
Situated at the summit of a hill (m. 345 u.s.l.) Castiglion Fiorentino shows wonderful landscapes both towards Val di Chio and the Pre-Appennines, which appears almost silver thanks to the olive groves. The panorama is dominated by the Castle of Montecchio (X century), once the dwelling of the well-known captain John Hawkwood. The historic centre gives an evocative glimpse of the medieval period. Indeed, there are many elements from that time: walls, doors, tower of Cassero (XIVcentury), Church of S. Angelo (XII century), Church of S. Francesco, Church of S. Agostino and the Palace of the Praetorian.
Cortona – (10 Km)
It’s one of the most beloved villages in Tuscany. It is the place to be if you are looking for signs of the Etruscan past of Tuscany.
The town is on a hill and shows a spectacular view on Valdichiana and Amiata Mountain. Born with Etruscans, it was then conquered by Romans and Goths before becoming free again in the XII century. Once free, Cortona reached its maximum glory. The centre is represented by Piazza della Repubblica (square) and by Palace of the Praetorian, currently hosting the Etruscan Museum. In the Museum, you can find the most important finding: the Chandelier from the V century B.C.
