This centuries-old guesthouse is smack dab in the middle of the bustling market streets and only steps from Piazza Maggiore. The four top-floor rooms, the largest and best, have vaulted ceilings, exposed wooden beams, gables, window seats that double as extra beds, and lots of other atmospheric touches. Rooms on the lower floors are considerably smaller and furnished with not much more than beds, though they’re enlivened with homey iron bedsteads and the occasional fresco or coffered ceiling. You’ll have to do some climbing to reach any of these guest quarters, as well as the lobby and breakfast room. The Drapperie also rents out apartments in a nearby building.
