Just got back from one week in Cortona. Dolce Maria was the perfect choice. It is situated in the heart of the historic, walled-in city. An easy walk to everything. The rooms are large and clean and, best of all, it is a family-run B&B. The owners are warm and welcoming and make you feel right at home. Nonna runs the breakfast room while Paola and her husband look after the check in and everything else. They also run a great restaurant which caters to many locals and a handful of savvy tourists. The food is delicious and great value. Can't wait to go back and next time I will plan a cooking lesson with Paola so that I can come home with some of her recipes!
