If you’re a fan of the book and the movie it’s worth a drive by. Easy to find (Waze) and fun to see the house (from the street) and see the little nook in the wall where the old man would always leave flowers.

It would be a shame to visit Cortona without seeing the villa, originally built in 1504, with a recognizable red orange facade. Thanks to the American writer Frances Meyes and her famous novel (which later became equally popular film), the villa located on the road...More

We had to drive to Bramasole. In the past, the visitors used to cut through the fields to visit Bramasole but this is no longer possible. When we pulled in front of the house, I was surprised to see so many terraced gardens, it was...More

Took the walk before it got too walk, but took the wrong / long walk, still lovely. Dropped in at the Torreome cafe on the way back - so all good

Apparently the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun” put this lovely hill town in the spotlight, so we could hardly come all the way here and not stop at this lovely villa. Longed to see it ever since the book and movie! Gated and up on...More
