The country saw a flurry of luxury hotel openings last Summer, with three new five star hotels opening in quick succession – one on the Adriatic Riviera, another on the island of Capri and a third on Lake Vico, Lazio. Here’s a quick summary of what to look out for: Grand Hotel Leonardo da Vinci in Cesenatico The Grand Hotel Leonardo da Vinci opened in Cesenatico on the Adriatic Riviera. Leonardo da Vinci, built on the ruins of Cologna Veronese dating back to the late 1800s, is situated along the sea and overlooking the famous harbour designed by Leonardo da Vinci. The hotel offers elegantly appointed rooms and suites, gourmet restaurant, indoor swimming pool, private beach and beach restaurant and a spa. Melia Villa Capri on Capri Hotel chain Melia opened a new hotel this summer in Anacapri on the island of Capri, only 15 minutes away from the famous Piazzetta.

Melia Villa Capri on Capri Netis Gourmet & Spa on Lake Vico in Lazio The Netis Hotel Gourmet & Spa was built on the golden shores of Lake Vico which is surrounded by a natural reserve, an area of about 3,200 hectares.

  1. Oh my gosh these are simply stunning, I think I may be in love! I think I’ve just become even MORE excited about my holiday (I literally didn’t know this was possible). Me and my husband are going to Italy for a romantic getaway – it’s long overdue and we’re so excited for it. We haven’t figured out where we’re staying though yet so this is soooo so helpful! As it’s a special treat my husband has said the sky’s the limit for choosing where we stay (the phrase every woman wants to hear) so I am beyond excited. I was actually reading another sort of similar article earlier that mentioned a place called Villa d’Este which looked great. Is this meant to be a good place to stay? I liked the look of it but thought I’d do a bit of research before booking anything first! So I really wanted to hear other people’s suggestions and opinions! I’m totally open to other places though so any other recommendations people have would be massively appreciated too! Anywhere in Italy is great though, Venice, Rome, Sorrento wherever! Myself and my husband love exploring so we’re open to absolutely any suggestions! Thank you everyone!
