ABSTRACT
The article provides a description of Cortona, a small town in Arezzo, Italy. It is a medieval town, built on a hillside and enclosed by Etruscan walls. Even now, art is rampant in the town. Cortona has shops, city life, movies, and even theatricals in the summer, plus a gigantic binge in August dedicated to the eating of steaks. The nearby village has plenty of sight-seeing. The fashion is also affluent here with girls dressed in nice clothes.
