This hotel looks like it was decorated in 1970 and perhaps it was as 30 years is fairly modern by Voltera standards. The view rooms on the fourth floor make the place grow on you as the view on a clear day is stunning. It is a three star hotel using Italian rules as their rating has nothing to do with aesthetics. The location is perfect and the room is comfortable.

Volterra has a history of alabaster artisans and there are many shops displaying lovely pieces created from alabaster, as well as many workshops where you ...
As luck would have it, the 9th stage of the Giro d'Italia bike race finishes today in Florence on the hill behind our apartment. So this morning, very early (8am, which is early in Italy, and early when you are on extended holidays!!) we headed up the hill to suss out the place and work out the vantage points to watch the race finish. Then we headed to the Bargello Museum. This museum used to be a Palace when it ...
... see my Sicilian pirate for of course "the besta pastries in Italy and the sweetest blood orangea juica". "Good morning beautiful" was the greeting to which I replied "Bon journo" and then we playfully selected from an amazing array of freshly baked with love (yep I am under the seduction) temptations. Armed with a mozzarella, tomato and pesto bruschetta, a lemon ricotta filled filo angels pastry, another twist with cassata type ricotta, a thin ricotta ...
