Italy has much to offer its guests, and most of the best experiences are off the beaten track, or generally difficult to find. Sorano is one of these, with amazing etruscan trails carved in the living rock, mediaeval castles and fortresses, delightful walks and views. The Fortezza hotel is likely to to one of the top ranging experiences of your trip to Italy, if you stay in one of its large, clean and comfortable bedrooms and soak in the atmosphere of a real 16th century fortress. Looking out of your bedroom window or from the hotel terrace would probably be enough for most demanding travellers, but add a stroll through the quaint streets of the town, a drink of the local wines and a hike along the etruscan "tagliate" (paths cut in the tufa of the surrounding hills) and you will have more than enough to make your trip a success and to want to come back. Add a tasting experience in the Hotel (9 dishes for 20 Euros, plus a selection of wines) and you will probably make your way to bed wondering how life can get to be so good.

The central part of the caste, where the hotel and the piazza are nicely kept it is OK. Unfortunately to reach that area you have to pass through the first castle and the reception: here there are offices, shops, walk away a to the towers... all CLOSED and abandoned maybe 10 years ago. It is a pity for who is investing and working around and a great opportunity lost for the city to attract visitors and cash to keep the city sustainable and alive. A real pity!

If you are in Sorano, it is worth the visit that starts in the Parco Archeologico, and it will take you as well underground the fortress.and understand how the Orsinis, developed the place. Simply must.

We enjoyed exploring the grounds of this ancient castle. Entry is free and you can access it at the top of via di montorio by steps leading up on the left or drive further up the hill (about 2km) to an area of free parking and the main entrance, (clearly sign posted). You are greeted by the imposing Renaissance entrance and it is easy to imagine being on the opposing side in battle. Deeper into the grounds is the original medieval entrance and a small but interesting museum, children are free and adults only 2 euros each, so it is well worth a look. You can also do a guided tour which I believe gives you greater access to some of the underground chambers.
