About the owner: I teach literature, from Antiquity to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance: Virgil, Dante, Boccaccio, Petrarca, and Ariosto, among others.
Why the Owner Chose Cortona, Arezzo, Italy:
In their literary works, 'The Aeneid' and the 'Divine Comedy,' Virgil and Dante tell us of their journey in Cortona and of the inspirations they found in this beautiful Etruscan city. Being in Cortona allows me to share the culture and the beauty that inspired these poets. I also like Etruscan Art and Cortona allows me the opportunity to visit its Etruscan Museum which exposes all kinds of Etruscan artistic expressions--terracotta vases, jewelery, and much more-- that have been found in the territory of Cortona. The central location and the narrow street on which the apartment is located, the Roman-style well and the 16th century fire-place, the wooden beams ceiling and the original terracotta floor, make my vacations in this apartment truly inspirational.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment is central: within a one-minute walk I am in the main Piazza, where I can visit museums, galleries, churches and other interesting places. Though my apartment is central,it is located in a very quiet area. This allows me to work quietly and to be able to meet my friends in the main square, or visit any of the beautiful spots, within a one minute walk.
