The apartment is very spacious, quiet, comfortable, clean, and, as others have pointed out, recently and very nicely renovated. The price for the apartment is extremely reasonable. On the upper floor, there are two windows that face the street and let in sunlight, but not so much as to make the place too warm. In fact, the apartment it is a bit dark which is typical in such homes, but there are plenty of lights throughout the house. If you want to sit outside and people watch, it is a short, but steep, walk down to the Piazza Signorelli, Piazza Repubblica, and Via Nationale, where is there are many places to sit and have a drink, snack, or meal al fresco. Luca’s and his family were easy to work with and very helpful. If you come by car, you will have to park it in one of the parking areas outside the city walls. Cortona’s roads are narrow and steep, so don’t plan on driving within town—leave that to the locals. I should mention that, if you are not in good shape or have bad legs, Cortona is probably not for you. It is very charming, but little of it is flat. Luca arranged transportation for us and our luggage from the car to the apartment and back when we checked out. Thank you, Luca!
