Its in a great location - within metres of a bakers, small restaurant, late bar (a quiet one!) etc and the main square is only 200 metres away. Straight walk up to Citta Alta, lots of great restaurants within a 5 - 10min walk. Owner Luca met us at the apartment even though we didn't arrive until midnight. Perfect.
