Hotels in Italy

Located near the Borghese Gardens in Paroli, the five-star Lord Byron hotel has a standard white exterior and a quieter location away from the city's noisier areas. Each of the 32 rooms and suites at the hotel have been restored in a 1930's art-deco style, but no two rooms are alike.

Colorful lodging near the Castelvecchio Museum.

Situated atop the hill of Bellosguardo, this distinctive hotel is housed in a Renaissance-era villa built around a 14th-century tower. Surrounded by olive groves and manicured gardens, the villa originally belonged to Dante’s friend Guido Calvacanti.

Halfway between Positano and Amalfi, the Amalfi Coast folds into a deep green gorge known as the Furore fjord. It’s there, in the fjord’s tiny village, where travelers stumble upon a secluded coastal hideaway: the Furore Inn, a 22-room boutique hotel.

Regal 16th-century lakefront estate is the most prestigious of the lake's hotels, with a jet-set atmosphere. Along with 152 opulent rooms, the property has 25 acres of parkland, just enough space for three restaurants, three pools, eight tennis courts, and a spa.

Live the quintessential Italian dream at Lake Como’s Grand Dame, an Art Nou palace with three glittering pools, barmen in white coats serving bellinis, and unparalleled views of Bellagio across the lake.

Though this blinding-white stone monolith looks as ancient as the fortified farmhouses that surround it, sprawling Borgo Egnazia is actually brand-new.

With more than 500 listings, the Milan-based agency has a formidable presence in Greece, Italy, and Switzerland. Most villas have live-in managers to supervise staff and services. Dream & Charme doubles as a tour operator, so booking flights and rental cars is a seamless process.

In the buzzing Tortona area of Italy’s industrial capital, Matteo Thun’s 249-room Nhow hotel—housed in a former factory—features a revolving showcase of contemporary art and furniture from Edra, Kartell, and other all-star design companies.
