We wished we'd booked an extra night in gorgeous Tirrenia, at the bright, breezy and luxurious Grand Hotel Continental. We came in May, which is apparently the off-season -- the staff eyed us askance when we asked if we were allowed to eat
breakfast outside on the "chilly" 60 degree morning, but then went out of their way to accommodate us there.
We also somehow landed a balcony room, which was absolutely gorgeous - a view over the Mediterranean. A stay this perfect at the price we got was nearly unbelievable. This was a true highlight of our trip through Europe and we would go back, preferably for longer, in a heartbeat.
Also, there are several good very places for food and gelato within a few minutes' walk, as well as an Enoteca with a very friendly shopkeeper who gave us an excellent wine recommendation for our evening watching the sun set from the hotel. The entire experience was wonderful.

Short walk from hotel
The Ristorante with the blue awning, across the roundabout and on the right, is fantastic and affordable. We liked it so much we ate there both times we had a sit-down meal.
