The sense of “lodging” for the word accommodation was first attested in 1600. At that time Italy already had beautiful places to stay. When you think about the art of welcoming guests, Italians are the best in the world. Our historic centers are appreciated worldwide and are home to amazing buildings and architectures. Luxury hotels in Italy seem to be part of the territory, just like if they had been here forever.
Historic buildings fulfil their role, the breathtaking views do the same. Locations is fundamental and style, luxury and comfort are basic requirements if you understood what we are talking about…
