Spend the afternoon with Renaissance masterpieces and sip Vino Nobile while watching the Tuscan sun set.  Explore medieval hill towns, make fresh pasta, hunt for antiques.  

Get delightfully lost in the winding cobblestone streets the Medici once travelled, and spoil yourself with Florentine rustic elegance. Experience Tuscany & Umbria.


Your home in Tuscany, Hotel Villa Marsili.  Located within the walls of the picturesque Tuscan city of Cortona, Villa Marsili is within walking distance of the center of the village. A gated entrance, 24 hour concierge, and all of the modern amenities of a luxury property await you.  All 26 guestrooms are all tastefully decorated and have a view of the lush, green Val di Chiana. 


At the beginning of the XIVth century, the Chiesa della Madonna degli Alemanni, a very ancient church with an underneath oratory, was standing on the very spot of the hotel.  (The church was on the present hall floor, while the oratory was on the lower floor. The staircase remains linking the two floors today.) Ceilings are adorned by frescoes and rooms are decorated with original and antique furniture. A daily breakfast buffet is served in the hotel's softly colored dinning room and in the evening, guests can enjoy an aperitivo on the garden terrace before dinner.
