During our stay at Il Falconierie
in Cortona, we came across Frances Mayes
, the author of the book Under the Tuscan Sun
which made the city famous, but it was put on the map by the Etruscans, who’ve left tombs everywhere around the hill Cortona is built upon.
The city is charming, romantic, and sweet with amazing views of Valdichiana and the Tuscan hills. We even found an underground well in one shop containing fish.
