Four Hot List Hotels in Italy

Conde Nast Traveller (British edition, thus the spelling) is out with their 2006 “Hot List” of where to stay worldwide. Four Italian hotels made the cut:

  • Byblos Art Hotel Villa Amista (Verona) – The hotel is likened to “a museum of modern furniture.”
  • Hotel Caruso Ravello (Amalfi Coast) – It reopened last June after a major refurbishment by its new owners, Orient-Express Hotels.
  • Sextantio Albergo Diffuso (Abruzzo) – This intact mountain village, a warren of cobbled lanes and steps, has been turned into guest houses.Affordable at 140 euros per night. (photo above)
  • Villa Bordoni (Chianti) – This is the first four-star hotel in the Greve area.
