Located at the entry of Anagni, not far from the historical centre, the Bed & Breakfast Novecento fills the first floor of an ancient villa called "Casa S. Giacomo" by the family who from over a century owns it.
Between 1920 and 1925, the villa has had a deep modification, with the addition of a portico surmounted by a windowed corridor and a new building extension, both of them in tipical 20s style.
The Bed & Breakfast, with private parking area in the courtyard and located outside the restricted traffic zone of Anagni, has been recently restored and refurnished in modern style, while respecting the architectonic and constructive features of the villa.
It is composed of three double bedrooms, each one with en-suite bathroom, air conditioning and flat screen TV and they are decorated in a neat and functional way, result of a careful study of furnishing, colors, lights and fabrics.
The panoramic kitchen, the breakfast room and the terraced garden are complete disposal for the guests.
Vintage pictures of the villa, along with some original furniture, will transport you into a fascinating 20s atmosphere.
The Bed & Breakfast '900 is the ideal starting point to discover the medieval history of Anagni, the culinary excellencies of the territory and local arts and craft of Southern Latium.

Anagni is known as "The City of the Popes" for being the birthplace of four popes and for having been papal headquarters and residence. It is a charming medieval town with pre-Roman origins.
The old town is situated on a tuff outcrop and the acropolis is located on the eastern side, all surrounded by cyclopean walls which were restored over the centuries. In antiquity, the walls had many gates for entering the city, later demolished or converted into new buildings.
There are currently three gates to the medieval city: "Porta Santa Maria"; the nineteenth-century "Porta Cerere" and "Porta San Francesco" on the south end.
In Anagni you can admire the Romanesque Cathedral renowned for beautiful Cosmatesque pavements. Do not miss a visit to the Crypt, known as the "the Sistine Chapel of the Middle Ages", where well-preserved frescoes cover an area of 540 square meters.
Not far from the Cathedral there is the Boniface VIII Palace, where according to the tradition took place the famous episode of the "Slap of Anagni". Inside the palace you can admire spacious frescoed rooms with geometric, floral and animal motifs.
Walking through the main street, Via Vittorio Emanuele, you will notice medieval buildings with characteristic pointed arches alternating with eighteenth and nineteenth century buildings.
Palazzo d'Iseo is just next to the main square, Piazza Cavour, and it is the current municipality of the City of Anagni. A large portico with round arches, above which stands the “Reason Hall”, so called because it housed the court, characterizes the palace.
In front of St. Andrew Church, you can see the decorated facade of Barnekow House, named after the Swedish Baron Alberto Barnekov. He bought the building in 1800 and decorated its facade with frescoes and inscriptions in different languages.
