    Cortona

    September 21, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Cortona is the walled city made famous by the book and movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" (with the ever homely Diane Lane). We didn't see Diane, but did stroll the streets and had an opportunity to hike up to the Church of Santa Margherita (the path leading to the church is captured in a couple of today's pics.) Beautiful day in the low 70's and sunshine. We also spent some time in Foiano, where we sought out another gelato shop. Ay caramba!Read more

    Lois & I were in Cortona in 2001. Nothing has changed. We stopped in a restaurant for dinner and had a Tuscan steak. Prepared like Nono did on the BBQ. Best steak I ever had. Also we sat across from the “This Old House” stars Norm and Steve. They were taking about rehabbing a house in Cortona. It didn’t happen.
