Lovers of Italian history and medieval culture will find La Badia a great choice of accommodations. A walk among the candlelit cloisters and porticoes in the evening almost overwhelm with the sheer sense of antiquity. A 12th-century abbey, 12-sided Romanesque tower, and wall frescoes all contribute to a wonderful atmosphere.
Antique furnished guest rooms are in keeping with the hotel’s origins but not overly so. Some rooms are quite spacious with views, vaulted ceilings, and stone walls. Bathroom and shower areas can be on the small side.
Another highlight of Hotel La Badia is the restaurant, and be sure to include a dinner here during your stay. Meals are a good value, and for dinner, anything from the menu is included. You can even watch the chef prepare your food over an open fire.
