The town of Cortona is where we headed next. From Andrea's correspondence I had become very envious of her time spent living and studying there the past couple of months. Once I laid my eyes on the town that envy reached a breaking point. Situated on a hill overlooking the Valdi Chiana valley the views from the town are fantastic. Some of the highlights include: the quiet cobblestone streets where locals would great you in Italian, tiny cars flying through narrow gaps, the Lions Well filled with hundreds of people for Carnevale, and delicious eateries speckled throughout, including Bar Sport where you can get a cappuccino and a pastry for 2 euros. In addition to soaking in the vibe of Cortona we also visited a few other towns in Tuscany on day-trips while Andrea was in class.
