The staff we very friendly and helpful. (However upon check-in there was one female person behind the counter who was uninviting and sour- we did not encounter her again thank heavens.) The breakfasts were typical European and of good quality,the breakfast room was very charming, and the coffee excellent. Wifi connection was very good. The hotel is very well located, close to public transport,within walking distance of city centre, and with numerous restaurants and cafes close by. Would recommend to stay there.

Also visited the Jewish section of the cemetery where writer Primo Levi is ...
... friend of Annalia's. I am seeing a slice of Italian life in all these visits. A truly grand apartment complete with family heirlooms and beautifully decorated, an apartment that has a family feel to it full of books and original artwork that Ettore and his mother have created, and a house in the country where there are home grown peaches and tomatoes, hazelnuts, almonds and greens served for ...
... world after Egypt, an interest that began with an imitation altar piece. It inspired the king of Italy to send a botanist to Egypt to collect items from its past. Stopped at the Parco del Valentino where there is a beautiful fountain depicting the four seasons and the twelve months. Home for a short rest and dinner al fresco ...
