The city has about 400,000 inhabitants and is one of the wealthiest cities in the country, at the same time offering splended culture and Italian cuisine to curious travellers who go beyond the general route.

The service is horrible. People at the reception are not responsible and do not want to work. They only take money but do not give anything in return.

The B&B Pratello is on a narrow street full of restaurants and bars all with a fun, casual vibe. It's about a ten or fifteen minute walk to the main square.

Owner was very nice and gave us alot of information. Room was big and clean! Close to the city centre! 10 minute walk! Clean and tidy! Only thing is they need a sign out the front of the hotel. Just something to notice the hotel and not search for it! But all in all great place to stay!! ... more
