We stayed 3 nights at Palazzo Seneca. Our rooms were upgraded to suites which were spacious and lovely. Really nice to have adjoining rooms with our sons. We thought that breakfast was really gorgeous- fresh orange juice, great coffee, great omelettes, huge range of pastries. We didn't eat in the restaurant but ate instead at the restaurant across the road... More

Palazzo Seneca is a Relais & Chateaux property right in the middle of Norcia. Beautiful historical buildings and very attentive staff. They took our car to their guarded parking area. Also were prompt to try to correct an AC malfunction. It took repeated tries by their engineer and at one point they offered to move us to a suite. Important... More

We stayed for 4 nights in May in one of the suites. The hotel was really lovely, the location was great - right in the town. The continental breakfast was really good, although perhaps a little background music would been appropriate. We stayed in a suite with a high ceiling, lots of space and a great bathroom. There was a... More

This is by far the best hotel to stay in Norcia and possibly in Umbria. Owned by the same family which has most of the hotel and restaurant in town, this is the flagship and a true gem. Located just behind the main square, it has about 24 rooms of different size, all elegantly and tastily decorated. Our was large,... More

We entered tired and grumpy. The town felt small and dull. But one night later we are quite thrilled to have been here. We slowed down. Had a morning cooking class and then a wonderful lunch with what we had cooked. Then, inspired, we booked for dinner. It was fantastic. Emmanuel is an amazing teacher and chef!! We felt so... More

We just spent five wonderful nights at the Palazzo Seneca which is located in the center of the old town very near the main Plaza. The property is a totally charming beatifically restored palace with only twenty four rooms. We had a very well appointed junior suite located on the second floor. The staff were all warm and attentive and... More

There was a lovely garden area where they were happy to bring us drinks. Our dinner at the restaurant was not only creatively delicious but also beautifully presented. Breakfast of many tempting choices, was served in a room with wonderful... More
