Paolo was a very sweet and generous host, and made me feel at home. He met me at the bus stop upon my arrival, and made sure I know my way back to his place. He gave me useful information about places to visit in Volterra, and directions to the tourist information centre if I needed more information. His place is conveniently located in the centre of Volterra - everything is just 5 minutes walk away!
Through his friendliness and warm hospitality, I felt like Paolo was more than someone who had offered me a place to stay - he had become a friend! I would definitely stay with him again if I go back to Volterra!
Paolo was a great host and helped us through our late-night and anecdote-punctuated arrival! :) Paolo’s apartment is very well located inside the stunning city of Volterra (overlooking the surrounding Tuscany landscape) and made it easy to wander in the city at nights and the morning for a breakfast. Room was spacious, clean and beautiful : just as depiced in the photos!
Note to drivers : A free parking is located nearby, next to the Roman Theater.
I really had a good time staying in Paolo's place. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was nice and clean. Paolo is a great host. He was very nice, asking every day if I needed anything. The location was perfect, right in the middle of everything. If I ever go back to Volterra I will stay with Paolo again.
Upstairs room was as pictured, spacious, clean & bright. Paolo was easy to reach and generous with his home. Per our request (he was unfamiliar with this procedure), he contacted Polizia to prevent ticket after driving through ZTL to drop off our things. Free parking nearby. Great location.
Paolo is a very gracious host and was more than helpful in making my wife Vonnie and I feel welcome at his very comfortable home in Volterra. We were having trouble with the phones in Italy so our only communication with Paolo was via email. He was very prompt in reviewing our messages in order to meet us at the bus stop and escort us to his place. We very much appreciate the recommendations for sights and restaurants and would happily stay with him in the future, as he would be welcome to stay with us should he decide to visit the United States. We consider Paolo a new friend!
Paolo was the perfect host, gracious and thoughtful. Tuscany is stunningly beautiful and Volterra took my breath away.... Paolo's place is very central to Volterra and was classically beautiful ~ in keeping with the romance/feeling of the city. He lives within easy walking (2 mins) of all the sites in the city and we had a wonderful time exploring the city with his recommendations. Paolo also went above and beyond, giving special effort to assist us with some research into family trees and we cannot thank him enough. More than a host by the end we felt we had made a new friend!
