There is a 20km road (ss438) that is considered on of the most dangerous roads in Tuscany – not because of poor conditions but because the scenery is so beautiful it can distract the drivers. We decided to drive this route to snap a couple pictures on our way to Cortona and are we glad we did. It was a beautiful drive

Cortona

Cortona is known for the setting in the movie / book “Under the Tuscan Sun”. While we didn’t see the villa that was in the movie, we had a great visit to this beautiful little hill town,

This town starts high up a hill and goes much higher. I was anxious to get to the top to see the beautiful church and views – but it took me much longer and much more effort than i thought – but i made it.

Typical pitch of road in this town

The view – and can see Lake Trasimeme

Cortona is a beautiful little city. Good walking shoes are a must and plenty of time to take in the charm.
