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.

... Expensive at 70€ with a bottle of red but great food. Porcini funghi pasta and fish in a strong tomato and olive sauce finished with a creme brûlée - best meal yet. Rain all night and predicted to get worse and stay for few days so no point staying here, nothing to do in the rain. Prefer to spend wet day in train and come back when it's fine.

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 ...
... look like they most likely grew up here in Italy and seem very much at ease. But I notice a passerby looking at them and then talking angrily on his phone. A few minutes later the police show up.
The police talk (politely it seems) to the guys, telling them they're not supposed to play volleyball in the park. Somehow I suspect that it wasn't the volleyball that got the caller angry, though...
Some things in Italy are changing. Some things ...

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!!
