The hottest hotels in Italy that you should know about, from Lake Como to Capri
Italy – and it’s incredible selection of hotels – has long been a classic summer holiday destination. When the time is right to go back, these new hotels should be top of your wishlist – from a new five-star in Florence to a Sixties Capri classic that’s undergone a renovation by a big brand.
Il Tornabuoni, Florence
Il Tornabuoni – of the Italian hospitality group AG – has one of the most prestigious locations in Florence: in a medieval palazzo on historic Via Tornabuoni, where its neighbours are Ferragamo, Gucci and Montblanc. The five-star glamourpuss has been styled by Milan architect Andrea Auletta who has lavished a sense of old-world opulence on its 62 rooms and suites, with their plush divans and armchairs, sumptuous fabrics, wallpapers in regal colours, antique mirrors and botanical prints. Among the facilities are vaulted wine cellars, a champagne bar and a gourmet rooftop restaurant.
