My husband booked this B & B months ago and when i purchased my Rick Steeves 2012 Tuscany/Florence book this place was listed in it!! When we arrived Paola the owner was waiting for us and grabbed my suitcase and carried up 3 flights of stairs to our room that over looked the court yard. She told us to get some rest and she would show us around when we were ready. She introduced us to her family that helps her run the business and at 7:30pm we went down to have dinner in her restaurant. The house wine was wonderful and the meal was amazing. In the morning "Nona" would serve breakfast in the parlor and though she didnt speak any English she would sit and visit with the guest. We stayed for 3 nights and when we checked out Paola gave us a bag of homemade biscotti. Cortona is an amazing place and I would definetely stay at the Dolce Maria again!
