The B&B Dolce Maria is the perfect place to stay in Cortona. Paola is a sweetheart and is very helpful. The B&B is just beautiful. . My room had a spiral staircase that went up to the roof...beautiful views! The rooms were clean, well taken care of, and truly Italian (the B&B is a restored palazzo). Paola's restaurant is excellent....

We had originally arranged to stay in another B and B in Cortona through booking.com. We got an email that the original hotel could not accommodate us for some reason so we were told that Dolce Maria had a room and would happily take us. Of course, we were hesitant as Dolce Maria had not been our first choice but...

My wife loves the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" so off to Cortona for Christmas. We couldn't have found a better place to stay. Family run we enjoyed meeting the grandmother who supervised the breakfast, Paola who replaced the vacationing chef ( and also the hostess for the B&B) and the father who sat us for dinner in their excellent...

The B&B Dolce Maria is the perfect place to stay in Cortona. Paola is a sweetheart and is very helpful. The B&B is just beautiful. The website pictures do not do it justice. I traveled to Cortona with my sister, and Paola gave us adjoining rooms which would be perfect for a family. My room had a spiral staircase that...

We throughly enjoyed our stay at the Dolce Maria in Cortona. Our room was on the top floor with a steep staircase leading to the patio on the roof, which offered a spectacular view beyond the walls for miles. The room was large with a very comfortable king bed, and a bathroom that was very clean, newly tiled, and with...

The innkeeper Paola, was extremely accommodating, good english skills. The B&B room I stayed in was roomy by Italian hotel standards and the food was simple but good. The location was close to the main Piazza but far enough away so there was no noise. Highly recommend it.

If having a sparkling clean room is as important to you as it is to me, this is your place. Amenities abound-crisply ironed white sheets, fluffy bath sheets, along with bedspreads you are not afraid to lie on, they are so clean. Add to this the gracious welcome awaiting you from Paola and her family, the fabulous Tuscan food served...

We chose to stay at Dolce Maria because of its Trip Advisor reviews and also because we wanted to stay in Cortona itself instead of in the surrounding countryside. We weren't quite certain we had the right place at first, as the sign for the restaurant (which has a different name, Locanda al Pozzo Antico), is more prominent than the...

My wife and I stayed at B&B Dolce Maria in early June 2011 and found it delightful and memorable. It is located in a restored medieval palazzo in a quiet street within easy walking distance of the Piazza Repubblica, Piazza Signorelli and the Via Nazionale pedestrian mall in Cortona. It has only six rooms. Ours was spacious, clean and tastefully...

My partner and I, travelling with a larger group staying in Umbria, ventured to Cortona for the day. We were looking for someplace to have a little lunch, off the beaten path. Somehow we stumbled across this amazing little restaurant. We could not beleive the smells coming from the kitchen, where they were in the process of taking homemade choclate...
