Hotel within walking distance

Looking to use Cortana as our homebase while spending three nights in Tuscany. We will have a car but looking for a hotel that is in walking distance to local Cortana shops and restaurants. Any suggestions of one with good views? Thank you

Pretty much impossible to make a recommendation as nobody here knows your budget.

What are you prepared to spend (in euros) per night.

The Marsili is one the immediately springs to mind, I walk past whenever I park in Cortona and think how nice it looks. Rooms at the front must have views. Otherwise the Italia? Certainly central but not sure about views. Look on this website (Trip Advisor) for they list the top 10 Cortona hotels based on their reviewers' comments.

Approximately $200 night. Would not be opposed to going higher but mostly everything I’m seeing in that region is under or around $200 so I think There are a good amount of rooms in my budget

What's that, roughly Euros 160? The key question is when are you coming for the price you pay in July / August will be almost twice what you'll pay next week. That said, Cortona has become a solid gold tourist trap in the last decade or so and hoteliers along with everyone else are cashing in. You may be lucky but I think a room with a view in that price bracket in high season is going to be a challenge to find.

I am well aware that I would not be using US dollars in Italy LOL. This is not my first trip to Europe. And I am going in October and had found many hotels in the $200-$250 price range Villa Marsili that was recommended being one of them.

Sorry... I should’ve stated that I was October. A friend recommended villa Marsili but it is booked for my dates. That being said is there another area close by that you would recommend other than Cortona for a home base? Thanks for your reply

The Hotel Italia, where we stay, was mentioned but has no parking reasonably close.
