To eat in Cortona:
Taverna Pane e Vino is a restaurant in the historic center of Cortona, which is housed in the old cellars of a 14th century building, where you can feel the warm atmosphere of Tuscany. It was opened in 1997 and today it is a real point of reference for the whole gastronomy of the province of Arezzo. The restaurant offers natural food, a simple and fast cuisine and an informal location.

HOW TO GO TO CORTONA FROM PACIANO FONTEGIRASOLE VILLAS – Take the short cut turning to Ossaia on the right after the crossing road PERUGIA SIENA,
park outside the city at the first parking (that is free) and go with the escalator it is faster, cheaper and easier!!!
