Two bedroom spacious apartmentTaking up the full second floor, you will find the Marcello at Casa di Amici.

We stayed at Marcello apartment over Christmas and New Years and fell in love with Cortona and Casa di Amici! We had the best sleeps in years, and the apartment was very nice. We joked that it was nicer than ours at home. The apartment had a big kitchen and two bedrooms, so we could spread out our things. We...

We had the fortunate opportunity to choose this lovely apartment for our three month stay in Tuscany. We felt very much at home in the apartment since it was well equipped for everyday living and entertaining. It is tastefully decorated; an old building with modern conveniences, yet retaining an old world charm. We were only a short walk from the...

We loved our stay. The flat was really nice, but the shower was over a tiny bath - be careful not to slip over. Samantha was very prompt with communication before and during our stay. The flat was close to everything - just short walks to all attractions. Getting to park the car at the church was through very narrow...

Thank you Ann! It was a pleasure to have you as our guest. Cortona is so beautiful, and I agree the tiny roads have a charm all their own. I am delighted you had a nice stay and great sleeps on the comfy beds. We would love to have you back anytime. Best, Samantha

About the neighbourhood
The house is located on Via del Gesu, just off the Duomo. You are just steps away from everything you need. Staying in the Historical Centre of Cortona is extra special!
Getting around
Marcello is the perfect base location to discover all there is to see in Tuscany with ease.

If you rent a car, there is ample free parking all around the town. You can drive to neighboring villages like Montepulciano, Siena, Pienza, Arezzo or Assisi easily.
If you prefer not to drive, there is the main train line that is in Camucia, just on the bottom of the hill about 5 minutes away

From here, you can train anywhere in Italy quickly and easily. Florence is only 1 hour away and Rome 2 hours. Many of our guests train to Cortona from the airports.
Car not needed
How to get there
Railway: Camucia-Cortona: 5.0 km

Cortona is easy to get to regardless of your mode of transportation.

The closest airport to Cortona is in Perugia, 48km (30 miles) away, which has direct flights from London (Ryanair) and Brussels.

However, if you are flying from the United States, the closest airport you would fly into is in Rome.

Once you fly into Italy, you can easily get to Cortona by train or by car. There are several options for taking the train (click here).

If possible, we recommend that you rent a car and drive from the airport. Tuscany is one of the most beautiful and scenic regions and there is no better way to see it than the freedom a car gives you.
