My apartment is in a 1,000 year old stone building, with all the charm and beauty one comes to Italy for. Just behind my building is a church built by the Etruscans in 400 B.C. and is completely round. It is a small one bedroom apartment; the bedroom has a queen bed, and in the living room is a day bed. The kitchen is small but equipt with a regular sized stove and refrigerator, (which is unusual in Italy)
It's a 1 minute walk to Piazza Republicca, and a 3 minute walk to Piazza Garibaldi, where it is possible to catch a bus and be at the train station in Camucia in 11 minutes. It's a 20 minute train ride to Arezzo, 1 hour to Florence, 2 hrs to Rome. There isn't a 'bad' neighborhood in Cortona, but my apartment is in a particularly desireable part of the city, close to restaurants, and shops, and only two short flights of stairs from the street to the apartment. Just 40 seconds from the front door is the best produce Tuscany has to offer, the Frutta e Vedura shop is run by a delightful couple who love americans, and the husband speaks very good english, and is happy to help you with your Italian. One of my favorite restraunts in Cortona is across the street, Dolce Maria. Between the shopping two minutes away, and the many excellent restaurants within the same distance, one could experience Tuscany fully, cooking at home, eating out, seeing the festivals in Cortonas piazza, and the market on Saturday, without walking more than 5 minutes. For those looking for a more adventurous trip, the trains from Camucia run up past Lake Como and into Switzerland in about 5 hours, and south to Amalfi in about the same amount of time. Cortona makes an excellent home base, located in the heart of the wine country, and of course home to Francis Mayes and many other writers and artists who come for its rich history. The ancient Etruscan and Roman walls encircling this ancient hill town, add to it's mid-evil charm.
