This recently renovated ('rinovatissimo') b&b is in an old villa a ten minute walk south of the Porta Romana... which means that it's a good half hour hike to the center of town (consider taking the bus, which stops at the corner). The rooms are clean, spacious, and tastefully decorated with a more modern touch. Our bathroom was large and... More

Nice B&B. great location, good service, great food. Clean and pretty. Too bad we only stayed 1 day. Wish I could stay longer. We stayed in a room has separate entrence, which is nice, you can up late wont bother anybody. And you will have your own patio with umbrella and tables chairs
