Hotels in Italy

Whatever your style and travel budget, you will find hotels in Italy that suit your needs—from exclusive beach resorts to modest bed & breakfasts. Italians are famous for their hospitality and visitors will feel welcome whether traveling alone, as a couple or with children. (Italians love bambini!) There are many famous and historic Italy hotels, which have hosted celebrities, royalty, fashion designers and famous artists and writers. Visitors who want to stay in hotels in Italy that have a storied past should try the Hassler in Rome, where Grace Kelly honeymooned, or the Gritti Palace in Venice, a favorite of Peggy Guggenheim, Elizabeth Taylor, and Ernest Hemingway. (Hemingway notoriously played a midnight game of baseball in the lobby.) Travelers looking for more rustic charm can rent a trulli beach bungalow in Puglia or stay in a 17th-century convent like the Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel on the Amalfi Coast. For a complete list of the best hotels in Italy see the Travel + Leisure list below.

Situated in the centro storico (historic center), the Ariston Hotel is within a 10-minute walk of major attractions like the Plaza del Duomo and the Via Torino shopping district.

An eight-room hotel, plus a specialty-foods shop and three restaurants.

The grounds of the 18th-century hotel are perfect for hiking—you’ll explore sprawling apricot groves, a medieval tower, and two nearby Franciscan monasteries.

This 10th-century tower features seven suites outfitted with Moroso armchairs and sunken stone baths; five have floating steel staircases. One caveat: the hotel is hard to find, so bring a map.

The 109-room Grand Hotel Majestic - Già Baglioni exemplifies traditional style: Murano glass chandeliers sprouting from the ceilings, acres of marble, a frescoed palazzo, and corridors you could drive a double-decker bus down.

This newly renovated property, with its rich wood-paneled rooms and contemporary furnishings, is the area's most impressive.

Situated inside the Neoclassical Palazzo Pierret in the Piazza di Spagna, the Internazionale Domus hotel overlooks the Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti (Spanish Steps) as well as the Villa Borghese gardens and the shops of Via Condotti, which include Valentino, Gucci, and Prada.
