September Days in Cortona

18 Sep

Autunno, or autumn, is my favorite time of year in Cortona. The days are shorter, the winds are cooler, and the tide of tourism transforms.  It is a calmer time of year that lends itself well to contemplating all that meets the senses.

Autumn – The third season of the year, when crops and fruits are gathered and leaves begin to fall.

A good time to take time to ponder.

    Thank you for the Septemberfest in Cortona
    The city appears medieval in many ways
    I could almost smell the market in your pictures
    Thank you

      It is such a beautiful medieval city, some parts over 4000 years old! and yes, the market has wonderful smells, especially the pecorino.

    Lovely blog. I’m sorry I’ve missed the festa della Lavanda as we’re only down the road. We had the first porcini last week from the market in Montepulciano. Delicious!
