The Locanda Borgonuovo is a wonderful place to stay in a very beautiful city. The family running the guest house are charming and very helpful. The personal touch includes the best Italian coffee with freshly made cake to wake up to, and very informed suggestions as to where to explore and where to dine. The location could not be better, just around the corner from the fabulous Piazza Cattedrale. Spotlessly clean, classy place to stay in a city which is perfect for relaxing, wandering around the Renaissance streets and gardens, and very accessible, being on the main train line from Venice to Florence. Not at all touristy, and a short hop from Ravenna and Bologna.
