This 11th century fort has been turned into a charming boutique hotel. Amazing views! Great staff. Christiano and Zoe work hard to make sure all your needs are well taken care of. Great recommendations for food and wine. The city of Sorano below the Fort is like stepping back 100 years . Was amazing to just see the town folk...

It's difficult to describe the entire experience of approaching this castle, staying the night and exploring the spectacular hilltop town of Sorano. We went their on the recommendation of a lady we met in a store in Grosseto where we went to purchase an adapter plug to charge our phones. To get there, we drove through Pitigliano and left via...

What a treat to stay in an honest-to-goodness castle! I wish we could have stayed longer. Our room was very comfortable and we happened to have a lovely view of the countryside. There was a nice terrace to bask in the sun and enjoy the ambience. Good breakfast, charming nooks and crannies and very friendly, helpful owner / staff. Wifi...

Located at the top of the mountain village of Sorano this property has magnificent views and the new owner Cristiano is very helpful with tips on what to do. The hotel is located in the old Fort of Sorano.

This place is tucked away in a remote town. We drove down Etruscan roads (read up on that history item) and were amazed when we showed up at the entrance to a castle. The small staff was very nice and helpful, plus the room was way more comfy than what we expected from an 800 year old building. Breakfast was...

After a beautiful walk we arrived at the hotel to a very warm welcome. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the view from the window was spectacular. A good breakfast and a small picnic to help us on our way to the next port of call. Excellent!

Writing my review of Hotel Fortezza whilst still here. A wonderfully historic setting sitting high above the stunning town of Sorano. You enter the hotel through the ancient castle entrance and pass through the old courtyard and we have a beautiful but simple room in the castles tower. I felt compelled to write a review before finishing our stay as...

We spent 2 nights in this hotel, and can't wait to return. From check-in to check-out, everyone we encountered was friendly, helpful, and authentic. The rooms are comfortable with incredible views of the entire town of Sorano, clock tower, Masso Leopoldino, and surrounding hills. Sorano is a quintessential Tuscan village with enchanting streets, stone homes built on top of each...

Commanding a magnificent view over the picturesque town of Sorano and the surrounding countryside, this is a gem of a place to stay. Big rooms, a BIG breakfast and charm oozing from its ultra-thick fortress walls. A great place to use as a base for the surrounding towns like Pitigliano. Highly recommend it. Don't miss the tour of the fortress...
