The Appartamento del Capitano is a charming and elegant apartment situated on the third floor of the ancient Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo, a building that played an extremely important role in the early Medieval politics of Cortona when the town was a city state. The Capitano del Popolo was the historical figure who traditionally represented the people of the city. This big palazzo overlooks the main square of the town, Piazza della Repubblica, giving a cross-section of the daily life in Cortona. The apartment has a bright sitting room with two sofas and an armchair, accomodating up to 6 people. The kitchen is very practical and it has a table for six people. There are three double bedrooms, one of which has two single beds. By a winding staircase you enter a characteristic bathroom with a shower and also another little toilet. The Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo gives you a unique opportunity to enjoy the atmosphere of the town centre of Cortona, walking through its beautiful alleys, shopping in the characteristic antique's shops and sipping a delicious glass of wine in one of the numerous coffee bars.

We were six in Cortona for a long wedding weekend - the location, just above the main square where we could meet with others - and see from the tower windows when they were there could not be beat! The apartment - like stepping back in time to a fabulous lifestyle. It is incredible. And very large. Cortona is very very hilly - be prepared - the steps up can be daunting, but not difficult ( our group aged 50-80) - just take planning to minimize the trips/ day!
Great apartment in the center of town
The apartment was really quirky and wonderful. Overlooks the main square. Really added to our first experience in lovely Cortona! Would definitely stay here again.
Fantastic location. Wonderful space and views.
This is an awesome space for visiting Cortona. Right in the middle of everything with amazing views of the square. There is literally only one flare road in Cortona so be prepared to walk up steeps hills and stairs. A lot. This apartment is up 4 flights of stairs so be ready, but it helps burn of some of the amazing food and wine.
Thank you Donald for your review! We do hope to see you around again soon.
Wonderful location and very spacious apartment
Location is excellent. Only bad thing was there was no elevator and had to walk up 5 flights of stairs as this was hard for grandma. We had no problems we communicated our arrival time and they had a taxi waiting for us at the train station. We also needed a extra bed and they we able to accomidate us. We will be using again when we return.
This place is a dream come true.
This place is a dream come true. The photos don't begin to show the deluxe beauty of a rare opportunity to live like a baron or baroness of old. The views from the 4th story are spectacular. The furnishings within are impressive and historic. There is lots of room to move around and windows on e of 4 sides. Quaint and charming and situated in the middle of a very lively town. We were greeted warmly and given many helpful instructions by our host. This is a perfect place to base a Tuscan hill town exploration. Can't recommend highly enough.
