Top Luxury Hotels in ItalyOctober 19, 2011
Italy is among the top ten international tourist destinations in 2010 according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization. It ranks third among European countries in the list, after France and Spain respectively.
If you’re planning a European trip anytime soon, whether or not it’s your first time in Italy, you’ll always have a reason to go back to this magical land of art, history, food and architecture.
Westin Excelsior, Rome
The Villa La Capula suite in the Westin Excelsior Hotel in Rome is among the top ten most expensive hotel suites in the world. One night in this luxurious suite is worth $31,000. It is to be noted that the Villa La Capula suite is the largest in all of Italy, found on the fifth and sixth floor of the Westin Excelsior. Similar to amenities in Miami luxury homes, the suite provides a sauna and fitness room, steam bath, wide terrace and patios, and a wine cellar.
Bauer Il Palazzo, Venice
Bauer Il Palazzo would most certainly feel like a Venetian-inspired Miami luxury home because the hotel feels more like a sophisticated home rather than a hotel. Overlooking Venice’s Grand Canal, the hotel has a private boat dock where guests are welcomed. The restaurant De Pisis serves Mediterranean dishes by Chef Giovanni Ciresa.
Grand Hotel Vesuvio, Naples
There is such a scenic view of Mount Vesuvius and the bay from Posillipo to Capri in this grand hotel. Grand Hotel Vesuvio has been home for celebrities, politicians and royalty who are visiting Naples ever since it was built back in 1882.
Four Seasons, Milan
Only steps away from Milan’s financial district and couture houses, the former fifteenth century convent combines contemporary Italian architecture with historic detailing. The renowned La Scala Opera house is just a few minutes away from the hotel.
Lungarno Suites, Florence
A world of unlimited comfort is what Lungarno offers. A number of amazing sites in the city is just within arm’s reach like the Piazza della Signoria and the Palazzo Pitti.
Villa d’ Este, Lake Como
One of the best romantic luxury hotels in Italy is Villa d’ Este. Built in 1568, the Villa was formerly a summer residence. It was transformed into a hotel in 1873. Overlooking the glorious Lake Como, this award-winning hotel/resort destination celebrates Italy’s beauty with superb cuisine and splendid décor.
