On the ground floor before the main bathroom with double shower, there are large fitted wardrobes; a staircase leads to the bedroom with a double bed, a designer wardrobe in plexiglas and bleached chestnut wood, bedside tables and a small bathroom decorated with "Mosaico di Bisazza". Bed linen and towels are of quality as well as crockery and kitchen accessories.

SIENA
Reachable from Cortona by car (about an hour) and by train (about an hour and a half), Siena is one of the most beautiful medieval cities in Italy. The heart of the city is the famous Piazza del Campo, with its particular shell shape, in which the famous Palio is held, one of the most important events for all the Sienese people. The Palio di Siena is a passionate horse race that takes place every year, in July and August, and its origins seem to date back to the seventeenth century. Siena according to legend was founded by Senio, son of Remus, and in the city there are several statues depicting the mythical Romulus and Remus suckled by the wolf. Piazza del Campo is the central nucleus of Siena since the time of the Romans, who had their Forum here.

ASSISI
Assisi stretches on the slopes of Mount Subasio, above the plain where the Topino and the Chiascio flow. Although it can boast a Roman origin, the current aspect of Assisi, both of the buildings and of the urban fabric, has certainly been determined by medieval development. The oldest part of the town is protected by a defensive system consisting of eight fortified access gates and a long city wall, still in excellent condition, which belongs to two castles: the Rocca Maggiore, rebuilt by Cardinal Albornotz in 1367 and the Rocca Minore. Assisi, in addition to the religious buildings of such great importance that it can not be considered its exclusive heritage, such as the Basilica of San Francesco, tourists can also visit the Basilica of Santa Chiara and the Church of San Pietro. The first was built in Gothic style between 1257 and 1265, the second one was slightly older, decorated with an elegant median portal and three rosettes. The Duomo, dedicated to the patron San Rufino, maintains a splendid façade with sculptures and reliefs; the interior, however, has undergone reconstruction over the centuries that have distorted the original structure of the thirteenth century.
Distance: 72 Km (by car, about 1 hour, by train, about 1 and 20 minutes)
Average visit time: 1 day
