Hotels in Italy

Former home of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, with a garden overlooking the surrounding countryside.

This Tuscan stone hideaway can sleep up to 12 in cozy interiors complete with beamed ceilings, antique furniture, and oil paintings.

The views are the trump card at Florence’s Hotel Helvetia & Bristol, where all 67 rooms and suites look onto the Renaissance city.

Daniele Kihlgren, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and budding hotelier, is on a mission to save Italy’s forgotten heritage, one inn at a time.

At the 12th-century Castello di Vicarello, hotelier and cookbook author Aurora Baccheschi Berti focuses on the rustic cuisine of Maremma, on Tuscany’s southwest coast.

Opened in 2008, this restored 16th century palazzo sits on what might be most beautiful street in Italy. The 64 rooms and suites range from the most perfect single room we’ve seen to family suites measuring upwards of 600 sq ft.

Alongside the bay of Naples, this carefully designed boutique hotel by British owner Michelle Lowe is located on the second floor of a 17th-century palace, with eight rooms constructed from natural wood, linen, and stone—predominantly polished white limestone.

Reminiscent of the Belle Époque, the Boscolo Hotel Palace is housed in an Art Nouveau-influenced structure built in the 1920’s by renowned architect Marcello Piacentini.

Once the headquarters of a steel manufacturer, its rooms are light and spacious and the staff is superb. If you can help it, don’t stay anywhere else.

A favorite of Italian politicians, the ivy-covered Hotel Raphael is located just outside the Piazza Navona, within walking distance of the Pantheon and Spanish Steps.

Situated on the outskirts of the Villa Borghese gardens, the Aldrovandi hotel has a quiet location within walking distance of Via Veneto and the Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti (Spanish Steps).
