Palazzone di Cortona

Reaching Cortona

Il Palazzone is located outside the massive ancient town walls of Cortona, and can be reached by a pleasant walk away from the center of Cortona (about 1,5 Km: you walk from Piazzale Garibaldi on Via Gino Severini and along the way you will find several tourist signs for reaching Il Palazzone). By Train: There are two railway stations, Terontola-Cortona (10 km to center) and Camucia-Cortona (5 km to center), on the track from Florence to Rome (one hour from Florence, and two hours from Rome, Siena, or Pisa). Both stations are connected to Cortona by bus (or you take a taxi). The train schedules can be obtained from the official timetable of the Italian Railroad company Trenitalia. Taxi service is (sometimes) offered by the following companies:

  • Giorgio PESCI ++39 360 957648
