The Famiglia Barboni (Barboni Family) were very warm & gracious hosts. I stayed in the Fenestre room and found it to be spacious, very clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed my visit to Cortona, Italy and I am sure the experience was heightened in no small way by staying at the Dolce Maria B&B. It was also wonderful to be...

Really enjoyed our stay. The room was large and overlooked the courtyard. We enjoyed several meals at the adjoining restaurant. Breakfast was great. Cappuccino was delicious. Wonderful family run small inn. Great fun to stay in a historic b and b. If you are looking for luxurious accommodations this might not be for you. We loved it and would definitely...

We had the Fenestre room overlooking the narrow street. Big room, very clean and comfortable, but feeble shower. (Our friends had the Camino room with no such problem) Delightful staff; the owner is a pleasure to talk with - and her mother is so much fun, running the breakfast room with gusto, taking care of you so sweetly - with...

For four nights prior to our wedding in Cortona on 12th September 2015 we had the privilege and pleasure of staying in the Dolce Maria B&B. We were given a large, spacious en-suite room overlooking the front entrance with a romantic four poster bed, which was absolutely perfect and even had a small anti-room where the wedding dress could live...

We spent 2 nights in this lovely B&B after reading a review in Rick Steve's 2014 guidebook for Florence & Tuscany. Located in the center of town we were ideally situated to see the sites. Our room was spacious and very clean. Paola, the owner of the B&B and the restaurant on the first floor, is lovely. She greeted us...

Extremely charming place in the middle of the medieval setting of Cortona. You will need to park your car in the public parking and walk up the village to get to this place so make sure you travel light. The interior of Dolce Maria is breathtaking with its intricate details and the rooms simply elegant, stylish, comfortable and clean keeping...

Perfect B&B to explore Cortona. Warm and friendly service, excellent breakfast and large clean rooms. Excellent location close to center and restaurants. Make sure you stroll around at night or early in the morning.

This was the most beautiful B&B I've ever been to. Luckily I came to Cortona in January so I was able to get a room at Dolce Maria. Based on the reviews by previous guests, I had made a request to stay in the Torcetta room to have access to the private rooftop terrace. However upon my arrival, the owner...

I arrived with my 18 y/o son for a two day stay in Cortona. We took Italian lessons at Polymnia with Laura and then had an amazing 3 hour cooking class and meal with Paola, the owner of the B&B. We made bread dough which produced bruschetta, pizza, crostini, foccacia and little rolls, fresh pasta including spinach/ricotta ravioli and tagliatelle...
