Savor an old-time atmosphere in the picturesque Tuscan village of Cortona. Start from Piazza della Repubblica and admire Palazzo Comunale - splendid with its crenellated clock tower - and Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo. Reach Piazza Signorelli, dominated by the homonymous theater, and pass through the doors of Palazzo Consoli to discover the MAEC, Museum of the Etruscan Academy and the City of Cortona. Do not miss the small but suggestive Cathedral, guardian of some artworks of great value, such as the Madonna della Manna, and the hermitage of "Le Celle", a place of prayer so dear to St. Francis of Assisi.
