Italy is a tapestry of beguiling landscapes and iconic cities – historic Rome, fashionable Milan, beautiful Venice, artistic Firenze, bustling Naples, eerie Pompeii – the list goes on. With each destination offering experiences to fill a lifetime, you can pick a single Italian hotel and explore in depth, or drift from resort, to villa to guesthouse, discovering the diverse regions that make up this passionate country.
Visitors are drawn to Italy’s hotels by the country’s wealth of history. The grandeur of Rome and the Renaissance are gloriously preserved in architecture, art and local customs and traditions. At the same time, Italy is a modern, progressive nation that sets the global fashion agenda, and the talented chefs in Italy’s kitchens exemplify the ethos of living to eat rather than eating to live.
Hotel guests will discover a rural idyll outside the cities, from the sun-kissed beaches of the south to the rolling green hills of Tuscany and the mountains and lakes of Lombardy. And idiosyncratic festivals and colourful celebrations proliferate in even the smallest villages. And whichever Italian hotel you choose, you’ll be only steps away from a bustling pizzeria or a gelateria selling ice cream to make the mouth water.
