Welcome to Italy

Spring time. Tavel in Italy

Italian art cities are books to be read, masterpieces to be admired, food to be enjoyed. BolognaVeronaFlorence and Genoa are true works of art that invite you to a completely absorbing experience from which you will return transformed. 

The hotels in the Group are the favourite starting off points for visiting four of the most beautiful destinations in Italy.

VISIT BOLOGNA

Bologna encompasses all the excellences of the Food Valley and tells the territory's story through flavours and lifestyles.  “Legendary Bologna... city of taste" (link al pacchetto) is a package that combines accommodation with small gifts of food and wine, tastings of regional wines in the Hotel's historic wine cellar, the Enoteca Morandi, dinner at the I Carracci restaurant (3 Michelin forks), and a gourmet tour. 

An itinerary that is one surprise after another: it centres on historical shops, typical taverns, an ancient chocolate factory and the medieval market.  An alternative includes a trip in the Emilia countryside visiting cheese makers, vinegar makers, prosciutto producers, wineries and restaurants. The destination is Modena to explore the places where parmesan cheese and balsamic vinegar are made.

But that's not all. The stay can be extended to include a cooking class by the famous Cesarine, the custodians of local gastronomic traditions. It begins at the beginning: shopping for supplies with the lady of the house, preparing a complete menu and setting the table tastefully. This is followed by lunch or dinner all together in one of the most enchanting historical residences in the city centre. 

VISIT FLORENCE

In Florence art is everywhere, in the streets, shops, museums, restaurants, wherever you happen to look. The starting off point for discovering the Renaissance city is the 5-star Bernini Palace, right in the city centre: it begins with “The Birth of a Nation”, an exhibition in Palazzo Strozzi until 22 July 2018. Curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, it is the first time that works symbolising the cultural upheaval in Italy between the Fifties and the end of the Seventies have been brought together: there are about 80 works by Renato Guttuso, Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Emilio Vedova, Enrico Castellani, Piero Manzoni, Mario Schifano, Mario Merz and Michelangelo Pistoletto. An artistic itinerary that starts with Arte Informale and ends with the experiments in images, gestures and figures of Pop Art, from experiences in monochrome painting to the new languages of Arte Povera and Conceptual Art.
 
A blend of art and history is also the secret of the Bernini, a palazzo where past and present merge in a play of elegant references to be discovered. Between 1865 and 1871, when Florence was the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, politicians frequented the Hotel every day. This is recalled in the Breakfast Room (Sala delle Colazioni), where you can enjoy the products of the territory surrounded by frescoed tondos portraying the protagonists of the Risorgimento: Garibaldi, Cavour, Gioberti, Balbo, Lamarmora, Daniele Manin, and many more.

 

VISIT VERONA

Spotlight on the ’Arena programme: from 22 June to 1 September Verona throbs to the rhythm of the world's best loved and most famous arias. The Due Torri Hotel is the perfect place for anyone who wants to breathe in the special atmosphere of a city devoted to art. The 14th-century Palazzo dell’Aquila, now a prestigious 5-star hotel, is the official seller of tickets for the Verona Arena Foundation (Fondazione Arena di Verona).. At no additional cost, guests can buy tickets for the shows in 2018: Carmen by Bizet (settings by Hugo de Ana), Turandot by Puccini, Verdi masterpieces Nabucco and Aida (in the Zeffirelli version), Rossini's Barber of Seville. The programme is enriched by two unmissable evenings-events: dance with Roberto Bolle and Friends and the Special Opera Night. 
 
The Due Torri is a real gem set into the city's “heart of stone”: the medieval centre, with its maze of streets lined with ancient palazzos, is where you can lose yourselves following in the footsteps of Mozart, Goethe, Louis XVII of France, Napoleon III, Garibaldi. And, of course, Maria Callas: the artist stayed at the Due Torri Hotel on many occasions, which it remembers by associating her name with some of the most prestigious suites. 

From May, the palazzo opens its flower filled terraces that face the Church of Sant’Anastasia, very close to Juliet's balcony, Piazza Bra and the Verona Arena. An immersion in history and beauty.

 

VISIT GENOA

Genoa, a city suspended between the exclusive Palazzi dei Rolli and narrow streets. Like the Bristol Place, it cultivates an Art Nouveau atmosphere through the details and elegance of the early 1900s, sinuous shapes and floral decorations inspired by nature that conjure up the spring. In fact, the months preceding summer are the perfect time for exploring a city that is embraced by the mountains and the Tyrrhenian Sea and where you can enjoy its “food” soul made up of the flavours of the sea and land. 
The jewel in the Hotel's crown is the ristorante “Giotto”, where you can enjoy the latest creations by chef surrounded by fin de siècle stuccos and frescoes. His menu focuses on the territory, with a variegated choice of traditional Ligurian and Genoese dishes in addition to the decisive presence of Sicilian flavours and aromas. The Hotel also has a splendid, 80-square-metre terrace bordered with laurel bushes, the perfect spot for lunch and aperitifs. 
 
Outside the Bristol lies one of the most beautiful and vibrant Italian cities. One of the Hotel's strong points is, in fact, its position, just a few steps from the Ducal Palace and the Carlo Felice Theatre, making it the ideal starting off point for exploring Genoa. Another suggestion? In addition to the "unmissable locations” like the Aquarium, the Lanterna (Lighthouse), the symbol of Genoa, and the Palazzi dei Rolli, UNESCO World Heritage Sits, a visit to Italy's loveliest park is very worthwhile. The Villa Durazzo Pallavicini park is a botanical treasure conceived by scenographer Michele Canzio. The various areas are linked by a narrative that creates a fairy tale route. Not to be missed is the collection of antique camellias.
