“Palazzo Galletti occupies the first floor of an 19th-century mansion. The weathered old cotto floors, lofty arched ceilings, elegant paintwork in soothing pastels, frescoes, the odd chandelier; all smack of a grand palazzo. But carefully chosen ethnic and contemporary design details add an alternative element. All but two of the eleven lovely, spacious bedrooms face onto a quiet cortile and have a tiny terrace. The best rooms are the two vast, entirely frescoed suites. Great value.”

“The historical Palace “Palazzo Galletti B & B” is located on Via S. Egidio, a mere ten minute walk from the Duomo and the S. Croce Church. It is also in the proximity of the famous theatres La Pergola and Verdi. On entering the reception area, on the first floor, one is immediately plunged into a sensation of antiquity and freshness that mark this ambience as an unusual private living quarter.”
