Hotels in Italy

The rental agency represents an extraordinary selection of restored farmhouses, convents, and apartments at rates from $885 a week.

Vittorio Dalla Rosa Prati welcomes guests to his 14th-century hotel, a period-furnished seven-room guesthouse that overlooks the city's 900-year-old cathedral.

On a cliff a half-mile from Amalfi, the whitewashed Villa Scarpariello could be your wealthy Italian friend’s private retreat.

Alessandro Bisceglie and Elyssa Bernard's intimate B&B opened in 2001 and is located just a short walk from the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. Eighteen rooms and suites are split between two guesthouses in the quiet Piazza Barberini.

The villa's gardens feature vegetables, fruit trees, roses and peonies, and aromatic herbs.

Three adjoining 19th-century buildings on a cliff overlooking the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, owned and operated by the same family since 1834 and still containing many original furnishings.

The 28-room salmon-colored manor house has Gran Sasso in its backyard, the Adriatic Sea in its front.

The hippest of the four Ferragamo-owned Florentine hotels, the Continentale also has an unbeatable location—right over the Ponte Vecchio, a bridge over the Arno lined by teensy medieval shops.

The hotel is a “rustic” building (i.e., built in the local style to look like a big, white, very beautiful farmhouse) with a pool surrounded by hedges and extensive grounds with mature, fragrant plantings.
