We love Orvieto wine, and were looking for a quintessential hill town to visit. Orvieto was perfect for a two night stay and B&B La Soffita was the perfect place to stay. Wonderful accommodations overlooking the Piazza Del Popolo in Orvieto. The most welcoming innkeeper met in our travels! Maria is truly concerned for your well being! Spotlessly clean, and the ability to make coffee or tea in the room was excellent. Our room under the ancient wooden beams was spacious, the bathroom was spotless and the bed was heavenly. Our fourth floor room looked out over the Plazza del Popolo - completely out of a movie set!
We stayed two nights - time enough to visit the amazing Duomo, do a bit of walking/shopping (lots of cobblestone streets and delightful shops) and visit nearby Montepulciano for wine tasting. A delightful place to spend time exploring this hill town and environs in outstanding company.
Of note: The rooms are at the top of the building - tough climb if you're traveling with lots of luggage up the four flights of stairs! Parking in the Piazza was free overnight but required payment for the blue lined parking spaces. It's always excellent if you can score a white outlined, free parking spot!
