3 Star hotel where the owner speaks a little of many languages but it helps if you can speak Italian.
Breakfast is simple: Bread, cheese, ham, jam, coffee, tea, orange juice - help yourself between 8-12.
Rooms as expected. Wi-Fi is limited, probably only on the ground floor.
Sockets in the rooms, mostly hidden put you can charge from the light switch/socket combo. I also found a European socket behind the door.

... The size of the tapestries was enormous, ranging upwards to 20 feet tall and with a width of 30 feet. They are a combination of silk and wool. They were made around 1601.

This is a huge job requiring special craft skills. Eight of the twelve have been ...
... had never seen before, very interesting.
After visiting the Duomo we walked over to the Roman ruins. We always find them fascinating. It's amazing how each civilization just built right on top the last. It will take this place years and millions of dollars to totally uncover this ruin.
We left town around 11:30. Just before leaving we went into a pastry shop and picked up a couple of ...
... br> Alessandro also shared some of his dish with us, insisting I try it. It was porcini mushrooms cooked in 3 ways. All fresh (no dried) and tasting of the earth, they were amazing. Slices that had been crumbed and sauteed just about blew my mind as did those that were simply grilled with garlic. I am now insisting that we come back in Autumn one year so we can gorge on fresh porcini!
By this stage, of course, we were absolutely full but Alessandro would not hear of ...

Last night after a few hours of good sleep I awoke about 2am and as always my
head starts thinking of things such as the journey ahead, places I will see,
what route to take etc. However what really was going through my mind was my
bike!! I had left it just outside the building and exactly where I could not see
it from my room. Of course I start to worry about it and am desperate to make
sure its safe!!
