A splendidly prestigious establishment that oozes characterful opulence throughout and still manages to maintain a friendly welcoming ambience. Its pleasant riverside location escapes the hordes of tourists without being too far from the central sights.
Handsome 5-storey building in a classic Florentine design which was a former courthouse dating back to the 16th century.
