Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Palazzo Piccolomini
Piazza Ranieri 36, Orvieto, Umbria, 05018, Italy
This 16th-century family palazzo has been beautifully restored, with inviting public spaces and handsome guest quarters where contemporary surroundings are accented with old beams, vaulted ceilings, and other distinctive touches. This hotel is often preferred by local winemakers and other professionals for its updated look. With a convenient location near the church of San Giovanni, it's a lovely, short walk past Piazza della Repubblica to the Duomo.
