m15***71Cortona is a small town in Tuscany. It is a filming location under the Tuscan sun. Many small towns in Tuscany are located on the hills, overlooking the Italian countryside, while the town retains its medieval architecture.
饕餮89This is the center of Arezzo, and the Giostra del Saracino event is held here every year during the Medieval Festival. In the past, the wealthy people in Arezzo would build their houses very high to show their wealth and status, so they have the reputation of "the city of a thousand towers". However, most of the towers were destroyed in the war, and now only the main square is left. A few lonely ones.
The big emblems of each town are hung on the buildings of the Grand Plaza. You can imagine the grand occasion of Giostra del Saracino.

Marie MonnierOne of the most amazing Cathedral I had the chance to visit. There is so much details and attention put in the place you'll never be disappointed. The ceiling is breathtaking and the size of the monument is huge. If you are in Florence you HAVE to walk inside and enjoy this historical place.
ChinaMexGirlBuy your tickets in advance! I heard someone saying they had waited 2 hours before going in! Go early to enjoy viewing everything you can. Definietly worth visiting, and don't forget to take picures of the river while your upstairs, and the dome.
