Hotel San Luca - 3 stars - is situated in the centre of town.  There is no swimming pool in the hotel, however, the Commune pool is within walking distance and is very nice.  All the wonderful shops, churches, bars, restaurants and museums are on the doorstep of Hotel San Luca.  Cortona has a world famous Etruscan Museum. 

 

This is a very special week in Cortona as the town has a medieval festival.  The town’s people celebrate the marriage between Francesco Casali and Antonia Slimbeni.  The representatives of the five districts of Cortona dress up in medieval costume and come together to pay tribute to the newlyweds.  The flag bearers and musicians illuminate the square with torches, swords and drums which makes an impressive sight.  The five districts of Cortona take part in archery contests and flag throwing demonstrations.  It is a truly unique experience.

This painting holiday in Tuscany is a town based art vacation.  Painting and sketching will take place in the town of Cortona each day.  On one day guests will be taken to Lake Tresimeno to paint by the lake.  There will be an excursion to Montepulciano which is well known for its wine.  There will be a guided tour of Montepulciano and the underground wine cellars including a wine tasting.

 

Guests have access to the many bars and restaurants in the town of Cortona and so lunch is not included this week apart from lunch by Tresimeno Lake on one day.  Evening meals will be taken together in different restaurants in the town.
