A short 10 minutes drive away is the ancient hilltown of Cortona. Outdoor cafe's, marvelous restaurants, quaint shops, and friendly people make Cortona a pleasant place to spend the day. It is a city with Etruscan origins and is rich in art and history.

Recently, Cortona's Teatro Signorelli was the place for the filming of some scene's in Benigni's incredible film, "La Vita e Bella" or "Life is Beautiful."

It is also the birthplace of Luca Signorelli (1450-1523), the precursor of Michelangelo, and also the birthplace of Pietro da Cortona (1596-1669) archetect and painter of Roman baroque, and Gino Severini (1883-1966) who was a part of the futurists movement.

The Museo Diocesano is home to a wonderful collection of paintings, including "Annunciation" and "Madonna and Saints" by Fra Angelico, and also a group of work by Signorelli the Bolognese artist, G. M. Crespi (1655-1747) called "Ecstasy of St. Margaret".

Inside the Palazzo Pretorio is the Museo dell'Accademia Etrusca which displays items from Etruscan, Roman, and Egyptian civilizations and also art and artifacts from the Medieval and Renaissance eras.

The churches of Santa Margherita, San Domenico, Santa Maria del Calcinaio, and San Niccolo are all worth a visit.

Inside the church of Santa Margherita there is a fine Gothic tomb (1362) which enshrines St. Margaret. Via Santa Margherita which leads to the church is decorated with mosaics by Gino Severini representing the "Stations of the Cross".

San Niccolo in contrast, is a small and intimate church, and usually on the short walk from the center of town, you will be graced by the singing of the nuns from the nearby Convent as they sing their prayers.
