Cortona, Etruscan history, beauty and vineyards

Cortona

Cortona, at an altitude of 585 metres, overlooks the broad and harmonious view of Valdichiana, dotted with farms, ordered vineyards, witnesses of the ancient and historical excellence of its wines.
Cortona has ancient origins. Etruscan town, mentioned by Greek and Latin writers such as Erodoto, Dionigi of Alicarnasso, Livio and Plinio the Elder, has always been a fascinating and fertile area, enhanced by the nearby Lake Trasimeno, laps its features with its name, with bold colors, the enchanting of the hill on which stands, with its mythical history, its sacredness, its art.
