Welcoming: this is the first impression we had, when we arrived at B&B Antiche Mura in Arezzo! Barbara and her father are amazing and very kind people and they immediately let you feel as if you are at home! The second impression was that, though a B&B, the structure was very well-finished and kept, and the impression was confirmed, when we stepped into our room.
The B&B has been totally renovated in 2008 out of a XIII century building and the skillful restoration allowed to preserve the old charm, together with all the modern facilities: white and gold exalt fascinating corners of old history; stone walls are witnesses of time passing by and they emerge from the partition of the reading room on the ground floor, from which the B&B takes its name. When you walk in the hotel, you have to be conscious that you are stepping over thousands years of history, as the remains in the corridor beside the staircase show you, if we look at the floor below you. The choose of colours and furniture, let present and past live together in harmony, creating different atmospheres in each room, all of them cozy and rich in attention to details.
All the rooms are en-suite and each one of them is equipped with LCD Tv, air conditioned, heating system, free Wi-Fi. Available upon request, you can have a bike and motorbike parking for free. Breakfast is included and you can have it by one of the B&B’s partner bars. We chose “GlI Svizzeri”, one of the oldest bars in Arezzo, placed in Corso Italia, because we wanted to experience a “historic” breakfast! If you want to learn more about this bar, just go to the Clubs and Bars page.
Concerning the location, it’s just perfect, because once you are there, you will need no means of transport to visit the city: Arezzo is quite an affordable city to be visited on foot. Actually the best thing you can do is walking around the city, because each corner will impress you!
Just a suggestion: if you decide to go to Arezzo by car, watch out the Limited Traffic Zone, which is into force from Monday to Friday, from 8.30am to 11.00am and from 5.30pm to 8.00pm. There are video-cameras so, if you are not allowed to enter, you’ll be fined! We suggest you two solutions: you can enter the city center in allowed times and then B&B Antiche Mura will give you a kind of pass to park for free in the toll parkings as a guest of the hotel; either, you can leave your car in the public parking in Via Pietri. It is easy and fast to reach, there are free parkings and there is an escalator, which leads you just a few meters from B&B Antiche Mura.
From B&B Antiche Mura, the whole city of Arezzo is at your hand: starting from the Cathedral of Saints Pietro and Donato, which is placed right behind the corner, you can easily reach each corner, included the main square, which takes about a 5/10 minutes walk from the hotel.
If you like historic romanticism and you don’t need a royal suite, we are quite sure you’ll enjoy your stay at B&B Antiche Mura in Arezzo!
