About the tour

Let’s discover the town that inspired Frances Mayes, the author of the famous bestseller. The town celebrated in the movie Under The Tuscan Sun shines since the Middle Ages, but even more interesting are probably the pre-Roman Etruscan remaining still visible nowadays. In fact Cortona is one of the oldest towns in Italy and one of the protagonists of the Etruscan epopee. Because of its strategic position Cortona has been the witness of some incredible historical events like the second Punic war when Hannibal defeated the Romans in between the town itself and the Trasimeno lake. I also would like to show you the panorama with the lake and the Umbrian hills from one side and the Tuscan hills on the other of course… Under The Tuscan Sun!

Meet Fabrizio Ruffa

Fabrizio Ruffa

Fabri is Italian, he is a licensed local guide and he lives in Tuscany. He studied at the University of Turin in Italy and at Wolverhampton University in UK. He has always had the passion for art history and for telling stories… finally in a magic day of 13 years ago he discovered that there was a job where these two ingredients are fundamentals: the tourist guide! Well, he found a job to love! He likes to meet people and to share his time and experiences: “it’s a great reciprocal way to learn and to grow” he says. Guess his favorite hobbies? Traveling, traveling, traveling! 😀
