Ready to plan a trip to Italy but not sure where to stay? Well… here are three bucket list worthy hotels you should consider adding to your Italian holiday plans if you want to truly experience la dolce vita, aka “the sweet life” as the locals do.
Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance so you can imagine it's every art lover's dream. Aside from endless galleries, museums and sculptures, you will find an incredible food scene. If you’re a history buff and foodie, Hotel Brunelleschi is the spot for you.
The Brunelleschi is a romantic, luxe boutique hotel located in the heart of the city. The structure of the hotel is something you should know about too since it was literally created within a medieval church and a 6th century circular Byzantine tower that was once a women’s prison. Not to mention, the tower is the oldest standing building in Florence! Amenities include a private museum, a gym and two dining outlets, Osteria Pagliazza and Santa Elisabetta, a 2-Michelin Star restaurant.
Rome, the Eternal City is known for its incredible architecture and history plus it’s home to some world-renowned celebrities. If you’re craving a mix of elegance and classic Italian charm you most definitely should snooze at the iconic Hotel de Russie.
The hotel is located between Piazza del Popolo and the Spanish Steps. Amenities include a secret garden, chic bar, restaurant and spa and an exclusive, electric Tuk Tuk service that offers hotel guests a Roman city tour and transportation to their sister property, de la Ville. De Russie is the favorite 5 star hotel of many actors, artists and writers. Don’t be surprised if you spot a celebrity at Stravinskij Bar during your evening aperitivo under the stars.
Oh Positano! This colorful, cliffside village is famous for its picturesque coastline, fine seafood cuisine and shops specializing in sandals, linen and ceramics. A lot of factors come into play when considering where to stay in Positano, but location and accessibility is most important.
Yes, walking up 1200 steps to get to your hotel can make or break your Amalfi Coast experience. Look no further though, Villa Treville is worth every penny, it's a 5 acre oceanfront estate, surrounded by lush gardens and includes a complimentary, private shuttle boat service to/from Positano at all hours. Hello luxury, VIP service! Villa Treville offers villa style accommodations decorated by the master, Franco Zeffirelli. Amenities include a seaside restaurant, an elegant bar, a hot tub, a private beach club and an outdoor gym with views for days.
