OVERVIEW

Insider Tip

The immediate area is rich in tiny art galleries exhibiting the work of young local artists; at least three venues are within two blocks of the hotel. On via dei SS. Quattro behind the hotel are a number of family-run trattoria - many apparently untouched by the commercial demands of the area - as well as an old-fashioned chocolatier and an antiquarian bookstore.
