Hotel Vecchio Asilo
Wrought iron bedframes, exposed beams and dark-stained furniture adorn the chambers of this B&B, situated on a road once traveled by poet Dante Alighieri. The property is located midway between Florence and Siena, with the old stone towers and stairways of San Gimignano just a 10-minute drive away. The windows of the dining room are thrown open during breakfasts of melon and berries accompanied by local salamis and bruschetta (the owner makes his own olive oil). A panorama of hills and vineyards can be seen from the terrace.
