It was really nice staying there, the staff were so nice and friendly! I went there with not having a clue how and where to go around! He planned my each day of stay in 5mins on MAP and highlighted the spot! He recommended the best Gelateria and food places. This was great for me, got to see everywhere by walk and didn't have to use public transportation at all! - Anonymous
