This was a return visit for me and my husband and we found it just as delightful as our first visit two years ago. The hotel was a palazzo at one time and you enter through a magical courtyard before walking up a flight to the reception area. The owners, Ivana and Gio, are gracious hosts for this delightful stay. Our room had a magnificent view of miles of fields below and mountains in the distance. The breakfast served in the grand reception area was worth the additional expense and a fun place to chat with other visitors. Gio offers personal driving tours and is a most knowledgeable tour guide, sharing his bits of wisdom and historical knowledge. If the weather is inclement, there is a comfy family room for guests to enjoy, and also for the beautiful days, a roof terrace that invites you to open a bottle of wine and take in the sweeping views. The hotel is centrally located atop this hilltown, just doors off the Piazza Grande. It's where history embraces you...and you embrace history. Submitted by Iowa City, IA, USA, happy travelers.
