Etruscan Cortona

We climb through olive groves to arrive at Hannibal’s Point with stunning views of Lake Trasimeno and Cortona. Then continue along Hannibal’s trail to reach the exquisite romanesque church of Sepoltagli. After a picnic lunch under the shade of umbrella pines we descend to the sleepy village of Ossaia (derived from bones) so named after the 217b.c. Battle of Trasimeno between the Carthaginians and Roman legions. Then time to relax, unwind and dip in the pool. The afternoon brings a guided tour of Cortona’s Etruscan museum with time before dinner to enjoy Cortona’s cafes and boutiques. (4hrs/8miles)
