Enjoy a visual journey of Arezzo and Cortona on our Tuscany Tour VIDEO:

 

This exciting Under The Tuscan Fun day tour with Stefano Rome Tours will take you to two of Tuscany’s most resplendent towns: Cortona and Arezzo.

Whether you are a fan of the popular films “Under the Tuscan Sun” and “Life is Beautiful” or just wish experience the superlative beauty Tuscany is legendary for, you will enjoy spending a day in the picture-perfect Tuscan countryside, reveling in the medieval atmosphere, savoring the local flavors, and creating lifelong memories of your special day in Tuscany.

 

AREZZO - the Tuscan city steeped in ancient history


Like many remarkable Italian towns, Arezzo has ancient beginnings dating back to the Paleolithic Era, and later on in the 9th century BC becoming an Etruscan capital named Arretium.

Over the course of its long history, Arezzo flourished into one of the most significant cities in Tuscany boasting incredible churches, monuments and museums. In Arezzo you will discover riches and treasures of all kinds: from beautiful architecture and art to precious gold jewels as Arezzo is one of the main centers of Italy for goldsmiths.

 

 

In Arezzo you will enjoy some free time to stroll through Piazza Grande, the medieval square surrounded by a melange of Medieval and Renaissance palaces, churches and towers vying for your admiration. The award winning film “A Beautiful Life starring Roberto Benigni was also filmed here - and not surprisingly, the actor himself was born here as well.

Welcome free time on your own to savor the local cuisine for lunch at any restaurant of your preference in Arezzo.

 

CORTONA - Tuscany's fabled hilltop town

Your Tuscany tour continues to Cortona, the hilltop jewel surrounded by breathtaking panoramas of soft rolling hills, lush valleys and characteristic cypress trees that make up the picturesque Tuscan countryside.

Well known in its own right as an outstanding artistic and cultural attraction, Cortona captured the hearts and imagination of millions through the memoir “Under The Tuscan Sun” written by author Frances Mayes that later became a popular film by the same name starring Diane Lane and Raul Bova. Many of the scenes in the movie were filmed here.

 

 

On a stroll through the Medieval streets and historic piazzas of Cortona you will be greeted by small shops, contemporary boutiques, outdoor and indoor cafes, art galleries, wine shops and restaurants that offer locally crafted items, wines and gastronomical products from the region.

Cortona’s distant origin is lost in the mists of many mysteries of Noah’s Flood, tales of Troy, and legends of Ulysses and Pythagoras passed down from classical times, but it’s documented history mirrors Arezzo in that Cortona was also once a powerful Etruscan capital with its ancient origins still visible in its 3,000 years old Etruscan walls. Cortona’s antiquity can be appreciated in a popular local quote: “Cortona: the Mother of Rome".


 

This marks the end of your Under the Tuscan Fun Tour. From Cortona you will enjoy a leisurely drive through the countryside back to your accommodation in Florence or Rome.
