We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Hotel Touring. Each night we watched the rooftops from our small balcony, as the red and beige colored roof tiles changed hue in the dusk.
The hotel is located a leisurely 10 minute walk away from the Piazza Maggiore. We stayed a week. The English-speaking staff was always helpful in recommending a restaurant or a walking tour or a museurm. Each took time with us reviewing maps and plotting routes. This was our second time here and it was lovely.
There are sidewalk cafes everywhere, which is handy since in our retirement we do not have the energy to walk long distances. So we stopped at different cafes every day and sat to watch the world go by. Everyone rides motor scooters or bicycles and the women dress much more formally on their way to work or college than most Americans do. Colorful scarves and dark toned leather shoes were part of the daily fashion show.
The hotel is run by a family and the care everyone puts into their jobs is obvious. The city publishes a map that we took everywhere and plots three tours: cathedrals, underground water courses and handicapped accessible routes. Each day we found a new restaurant, a new food specialty shop and a new way to get to the city square and back. The staff recommended our favorite Trattoria, within a few blocks, called Trebbi. Although we do not speak Italian, we found that if we followed the protocol of basic politeness and some greetings in Italian, everyone we met in the city was able to get across a message of some sort, using fluent English to handgestures! We recommend Hotel Touring and plan to go back every spring!
