Built on a hilltop, steeped in history and synonymous with elegance, Cortona is a dream destination with a glorious past. The legendary de' Medici family ruled Cortona in the 15th Century and it was during this Renaissance period that Palazzo Tommasi was constructed as one of the most noble residences in Tuscany. Famous Cortonese artist, Luca Signorelli, an old master painter, likely student of Piero della Francesca and precursor of Michelangelo, and architect, Pietro Berrettini, were involved in the building of Palazzo Tommasi.
Today Palazzo Tommasi has been meticulously restored to its former glory. It's divine, indulgent and quite simply glorious.
After a restoration spanning four years, Peter and Inge finally moved into the Palazzo Tommasi in 2014. A qualified physiotherapist and Natural Face Lifting practioner, Inge offers a range of treatments at Palazzo Tommasi as well as classes in yoga.
