We stayed here a few weeks ago for three nights and really loved it. I was very surprised when we got to the room to find how spacious it was. We felt we had hit the jackpot! Very high ceilings add to the charm of this well-preserved old building. (Our days of staying in cramped spaces are over.) The room is extremely quiet at night which is amazing considering how close it is to the main piazza of the historic center - just cut through an alley across from the front door and you walk right into the piazza. (Tip - the gelateria on your right in the piazza when you cut through this alley is delicious.) No problems with the wifi.
Gianmauro could not have been more helpful and accommodating. He helped us arrange for a tennis lesson down in the lower city and gave very helpful directions on how to get there. He was also a great source for restaurant tips. Also, I always appreciate it when the owner and family live in the same building as was the case here. We got to meet his charming wife and adorable son each morning at breakfast as they said "Ciao" to papa on the way to school.
Very highly recommended. Suggestion: Book directly with him - not through a third party site. I always prefer to book directly with the B&B - that way they don't have to pay a booking fee. One note - he had trouble a few times receiving an email from our Comcast address. If you're emailing him and not getting a response, that might be the problem.
