The prevailing character of Cortonas architecture is medieval with steep narrow streets but I suggest you to discover the Etruscan heritage of this city.

After lunch drive to Arezzo on the road you may stop to see villa Bramasole the location for the 2003 film Under the Tuscan Sun. Arezzo with a starring role in Roberto Benigni's film Life Is Beautiful (La vita รจ bella, 1997) was one of the Capitae Etruriae (Etruscan capitals), and was an important city during the medieval times. You can admire the paintings of Piero della Francesca who eas born and lived here almost all his live but also Cimabue's Crucifix in the church of San Domenico and Tthe Tarlati polyptych by Pietro Lorenzetti. You can dine at one of the many good restaurant in the Piazza Maggiore. Overnight at hotel.
