    A visit here means seeing some very fine churches: the Basilica of San Francesco is the great monument to the Saint and was started after he was canonized in 1228; it has frescoes by Giotto, Cimabue and Lorenzetti.
    Three more churches merit your attention: the Cattedrale di San Ruffino and the Basilica di Santa Chiara. The third church is the Basilica degli Angeli, built over and around the little chapel, the Porziuncola, where the angels visited St Francis. Besides its many churches, Assisi also has some fine secular buildings: there is a fine Piazza del Comune with a torre and a Palazzo del Comune, and a Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo.

    Cortona is one of the oldest cities in Tuscany and was founded by the Etruscans whose work can still be seen in the foundations of the town's massive stone walls.
    The city was a major seat of power during the medieval period, able to hold its own against larger towns like Siena and Arezzo; its decline was followed the defeat by Naples in 1409 after which it was sold to Florence and lost its autonomy.
    Cortona’s narrow streets and alleyways give you the impression of how it must have been in these small isolated towns in the medieval period, and you’ll realize how much history a little town can contain. Cortona has been made famous by the book Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes.
