Originally the Palazzo delle Poste, this historic building has been renovated into a grand hotel yet preserving the original structure and architectural features. 

It is in an ideal location to visit the city’s sights and historic monuments yet providing a wonderful retreat after sightseeing with the spa having a lovely indoor pool.
