The second weekend of our study abroad my friends and I took a day trip to Cortona, a famous town 10 minutes away from Castiglion Fiorentino where they filmed the movie Under the Tuscan Sun. We toured the town for a few hours then attempted to go to the nearby lake, Trasimeno, in Castiglion del Lago. Unfortunately, we got off one train stop too early and had to hike to the lake for about an hour and a half on the highway. It was an adventure, but we finally made it to the lake where we found a campground with a pool and gelato shop. Cortona is beautiful, definitely on the more touristy side, but totally worth a day trip! Every street corner is gorgeous and there is so much art and exhibitions in every shop. Definitely picture perfect!
