      Ciao Sharon,
      Thanks for contacting me, I’m happy to give some advice for your trip to Italy.
      The area of Cortona is one of the most fascinating of all Tuscany and one of those I prefer 🙂
      You may start by reading my recent article dedicated to planning a holiday in Cortona, where to find useful info.

      I also love to cook, especially cakes! For Cortona, I highly recommend the cooking school Toscana e Gusto, great to learn typical Tuscan recipes and much more.
      As far as a tour of the countryside with a personal guide, I recommend the tours offered by Serena Ricci, a professional tourist guide, that will help you discover all the beauty of the region.
      Finally here is a full website on visiting Cortona.
      I remain at your disposal for any other help you may need,
      Elena from Florence
