Location

La Guardata is situated close to the small city of Castiglion Fiorentino. This small, walled medieval city has a population of around 14 000 people and is well known for its archeological sites. The city is a former Etruscan city and was founded in the 4th century B.C. The city has a very nice fortress called the Cassero, which was built in 1367. You will find many other beautiful churches and historical buildings, as well as supermarkets, shops and restaurants. If you go north, you will arrive in Arezzo, the biggest city in the area with its 100 000 habitants. And if you go straight south, you will arrive in Cortona.
Cortona is known as the number one film and cultural center in Tuscany, after Arezzo and has added streets and houses to a movie from Hollywood. The movie is called «Under the Tuscan Sun» and was released in 2003. The lead character is played by Diane Lane, who actually was nominated to a Golden Globe for best actress for this role. Long story short, the movie is about Frances Mayes (Diane Lane, a writer based in San Francisco. It seems that she has a perfect life with her husband, but she finds out that he is cheating on her, so they get divorced. She loses her house and her husband, so she decides to go away for a while and goes to Tuscany.
Besides being a movie celebrity, Cortona is a nice and cozy town. It has lots of history and was founded in the 7th century B.C. Back then, the city was part of the Etruscan Empire and later on, it became a Roman colony. After the Romans, the city became a state of its own, with its own coins, before it became a part of Tuscany and Italy during the 18th century. The city itself shows signs of being a medieval city, with its narrow streets, situated on a hillside, 600 meters up. It’s very cozy, just walking around in the city. You should see the Basilica di Santa Margherita. This is situated in the upper part of the town and it can be a bit heavy to walk up there, but it’s worth the trip. When you are back in the main part of the town, you can enjoy a coffee or a good lunch on the Piazza Della Repubblica, the cozy square in Cortona.
