“A perfect place to stay in this most beautiful city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2009

Our stay at the B&B Antico Borgo Piceno was perfect! Great location, historic architecture, spotless room, cordial hospitality. Everything was wonderful! The B&B is conveniently located just across Ponte Solestà, on the banks of the Tronto River, overlooking the historic center of Ascoli Piceno. It is in a renovated convent, with coved archways, thick walls, but recently remodeled and beautifully decorated. Our room had a bedroom area, bath and kitchenette (gas oven, range, microwave, refrigerator, dishes, pots, etc.), so it was nice after eating out all the time to make our own dinner following some fun shopping for local meats, pasta and veggies. I loved the beautiful view from window at the dining area across the Tronto River to the historic center of Ascoli Piceno. Antico Borgo has a beautiful, tiled rooftop deck on which breakfast is served when the weather is warmer (see photo).

NOTE: The google map for the address of this B&B (and curiously! the map on their own website, which is generated by google) IS NOT CORRECT. The location of the B&B is near the north side of the Ponte Solesta, take the first left (west, a oneway called Via San Serafino da Montegranaro), and the entrance is about 4 doorways down on the left. See photos. If you are driving, you can continue on up the street and there is on-street parking all along the way.

Elisabetta, the owner and our host (who lives on the second floor with her family) was very warm and helpful, giving tips about things going on in the city, places to visit, and regional travel advice. The walk from Antico Borgo across the Solesta bridge (see photo) brings you directly into the historic center of town. Walk the narrow cobbled streets of this beautiful, graceful city to, in my view, one of the most perfect public spaces in Italy: Ascoli Piceno's Piazza del Popolo. This piazza (see photo) is perfectly proportioned so it is large enough to be grand, but at the same time acoustically perfect so you can hear the intimacy and melody of conversations in cafes around the square. While you're in the Piazza, relax a while (indoors or out, either is splendid) at the historic Caffè Meletti.

In addition to its beauty, Ascoli Piceno seemed to truly be a city of art and culture. One evening we stumbled upon and attended two concerts, one classical music at Cathedral St. Emidio, and the other a Coldplay cover band on the street!. There were lots of art galleries, and great cafes and restaurants. It also served as a great base for exploration of the Marche region. We drove on one daytrip through the spectacular national park of Monti Sibillini (see photo), and our warm, beautiful B&B Antico Borgo was a welcome place to return to each day. Stay here!
