While choosing between any number of suitable luxury hotels in Italy it is always wise to take into account the local places of interest that you will have access to. Italy, being home to so many historical landmarks, truly spoils the visitor for choice and variety. When in Rome, for example, it’s an absolute must to take a tour of the impressive Colosseum.
Aside from this vast and impressive monument to the genius of early Romans, another must see destination is the beautiful St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel and the Palazzo Ducal, better known as the Doge’s Palace. A little exploration further a-field and you may well find yourself in Venice, exploring the elegant Piazza San Marco with its famous San Marco Basilica, a monument to the artful combination of Roman and Byzantine architecture.
A visit to any one of the luxury hotels in Italy will provide you with access to historical sites oozing history and culture. Take, for example, the Ponte Vecchio in enigmatic Florence, the Jewel of Tuscany and the birthplace of the Renaissance. Explore the 12th century Piazza del Duomo, which sports a mediaeval dome designed by Filippo Brunelleschi.
