The Hotel della Fortezza in Sorano is a (genuine) medieval castle which has been imaginatively converted into a superb hotel. It is in a really spectacular location, towering over the town of Sorano and the surrounding hills. This is a fascinating part of Tuscany that is very much neglected by tourists. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and my wife and I thought that the breakfast was excellent. The hotel offers remarkable value for money and provides a quite unique Italian experience.
