History & Location

Palazzo Passerini was built from 1492-1495 by Passerini who then moved to Florence and became friends with Lorenzo di Medici (Later Pope Leo X). He returned to Cortona in 1526 to take up residence in the main square in a building gifted to him as Cardinal Passerini. He later built a grander Palazzo outside the city walls, but our Palazzo was the original and is built on Etruscan foundations that date back millennia.

The residence is located in the heart of Cortona, one of Tuscany's most idyllic hilltop towns. Enjoy many activities from truffle hunting, to cycling, or join in the festivities of Cortona's many festivals. A quintessential Italian experience.
