6 of the best luxury hotels in Italy you should know
These luxury hotels are a sight and experience of their own when you visit Italy.
Italy is one of the most visited countries in the world with as much as 48.6 million travelers visiting the country. From 2015, Italian tourism was estimated to be up 5 percent in Venice, 5.6 percent in Florence, 9 percent in Capri, and 20 percent in Cinque Terre.
It’s no wonder why those numbers are still expected to come up. The country is home to picturesque vineyards, art masterpieces, historical sights and a lot more. The top picks for sightseeing around Italy include the Colosseum, the Venice Canals, Pompeii, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Lake Como, and the Amalfi Coast.
After a full day of exploring what the country has to offer, it’s a welcome break to put one’s foot up to relax in one of these luxury hotels.
