We have just returned from 2 weeks in Italy. I used Trip Advisor extensively to select small family run B&Bs for our trip.
We stayed for 3 nights at Al Mercato in Siena - near Florence, in Tuscany, and would definitely recommend it to others. It is ideally located, just off the main square with a view over the market square. They have great room options and a super restaurant right next door.
The room was spacious, air conditioned with great windows and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom had a super shower - even for tall visitors to Italy. The breakfast was just outside our door, served by a lovely young student and family member. We really enjoyed the chance to get to know a 'local' and hear about real life in Siena, Italy!
We would highly recommend this B&B for couples or families travelling to the old world of Siena in Tuscany, Italy!
