Arezzo’s most atmospheric and comfortable little inn is just a few steps below the Duomo, enjoying an airy prospect off to one side of the town—in fact, it’s tucked into the old walls and dates from the 1200s. Rock outcroppings, stone walls, glass walkways over ancient foundations, and an old olive press celebrate this heritage, while sleekly simple furnishings, bright white walls beneath old beams, and splashes of color add a distinctly contemporary flair; each room is named and styled after a famous woman in literature or the movies, from Madame Bovary's period decor to the sensual reds used in the Marilyn Monroe room. Breakfast is served is served in a nearby bar.
