Homey charm in the heart of city

Lucia and Claudio were wonderful and very helpful. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the inn is located in one of the best areas for shopping, walking and fantastic restaurants. If you don't do well on lots of stairs, be sure to ask for a room on one of the first levels.
