Today’s route leads down from Montepulciano, following secondary roads though softly rolling farmland to come to the village of Cortona, the hilltop village now somewhat synonymous with Francis Mayes book Under the Tuscan Sun. It’s a fine village to linger for awhile, before proceeding to Perugia, capital of Umbria. Take the afternoon to explore this hub of students and artists.
