Hotels in Italy

The Hotel: Like the home of an exotic world traveler, this tiny jewel-box of an inn is filled with unusual art, gorgeous textiles, and unique furnishings from far-flung locales like Asia and North Africa.

In Milan’s residential Città Studi neighborhood, fashion and furnishings designer Christiane Blanchet has spruced up a 1903 villa with her signature Indochine aesthetic.

Five hundred and seventy acres on Sicily’s southwestern coast have been shaped into a golf resort with the subtle, undeniable luxury we’ve come to expect from the Rocco Forte Collection. Every room has an unencumbered sea view (a non-putter might never know there are two 18-hole courses).

Five connected historic palaces situated along the Grand Canal, with unsurpassed views of Santa Maria della Salute, the city's iconic 17th-century church.

Quiet inn minutes from central Lucca.

When the Marquis and Marchioness Paterno’ Castello di San Giuliano returned to their ancestral home in Sicily after years abroad, they renovated their villa that had stood empty 100 years.

The original grande dame of Amalfi Coast hotels still reigns in Belle Époque splendor on the coastal road just outside the town of Amalfi.

This magnificent grande dame of a hotel is the premier resort on Capri, with 55 rooms and suites that offer sweeping postcard views over the Bay of Naples, the hotel gardens, or the volcanic isle of Ischia.

Contemporary rooms steps from the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the galleries of Dorsoduro.

This family-owned hotel (and restaurant) offers an affordable stay in Recco.

Glamour comes naturally to the Campa brothers, owners of the intimate 12-room property. Their grandfather created the world’s largest Murano-glass chandelier, now in a casino in Knokke-le-Zoute, Belgium (a panoramic photograph of the piece is on view in the breakfast salon).

The 24-room hotel is set in a 16th-century palace.
