The Porcellino is right on the Nouvo Market square and just outside the Porcellino statue. It's location is very central in the old town with no piazza or main site more than 15 minutes walk away. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you, especially Mariella. Breakfast is always fresh and laid for you, based on a continental croissants and ham sandwiches as well as fresh fruit salad and yoghurt which is cut every morning. The non alcoholic drinks are available on self serve and inclusive basis, as well as a one hour session from 630 to 730 pm to enjoy the owners vineyard wine and aperitif's. The room was of a good size, high ceilings and aircon. It was clean and comfortable. Wifi is included and the only down side we found is that is is rather noisy outside. If you're a light sleeper (as my wife is) you will struggle with this.
