The first hotel that opened in Todi's historic center, the Fonte Cesia successfully melds modern architectural glass and wood elements with a 16th-century palazzo. Each of the suites has a small balcony or terrace and is unique -- and worth the splurge, especially when the high-season cost of a double brings the prices close. The "Novecento" has 19th-century antiques, the "Jacopone" has Wassily chairs and a claw-foot tub, and the "Venturini" has a canopy bed. In summer, breakfast is served on a huge palm-shaded terrace that sits atop the hotel's 17th-century namesake fountain.
