Borgo Syrah is just outside the village of Cortona in a beautiful location surrounded by vineyards. Cortona is a town of Etruscan origin in the mountains of the province of Arezzo in the Italian region of Tuscany. The city was founded on one of the earliest inhabited hills of the province and its streets similar to cities like Assisi and Volterra. Cortona is located on the border between Tuscany and Umbria. Lake Trasimeno in Umbria can be seen from the higher parts of the city and is a 15 minutes drive away from Borgo Syrah. This turquoise lake is surrounded by beautiful green hills, vineyards and olive groves and is well worth a visit. Nice2stay tip: rent a boat for a day!
The region also is notable for producing writers, scientists, architects, musicians and artists, all of whom have placed their stamp on the world, as evidenced by the inventive experiments of Galileo, the grandeur of a Puccini opera, and the literary world of Dante, Petrarch and Boccaccio.
Cortona served as a backdrop for some scenes in Roberto Benigni's film La vita è bella (2003). In the nineties, the American writer Frances Mayes bought an old house in Cortona, and totally refurbished it. Here she wrote the book Under the Tuscan Sun (1996). It became a bestseller and later was filmed.
