To travel through Italy is as close as one gets to being in paradise. For centuries, writers, artists, architects and merchants have been drawn here, inspired by the beauty of Venice, Florence, Naples and Rome. Countless books, paintings, poems and sculptures are evidence of its undying appeal, and over the past 60 years, the country has become one of the world's top travel and holiday destinations. The loveliness of Italy - its architecture, landscapes, culture and food (some of the world's finest!) - if not eternal, is certainly enduring, and the easy-going and relaxed Italian lifestyle, il dolce far niente, is still unrivaled. Here, some of Italy's most amazing landscapes are brought to life, like Lake Como (residence of George Clooney), Venice, Florence and Tuscany, the Amalfi Coast, and no less magical, the Aeolian Islands off the coast of Sicily. In these mythical surroundings are legendary hotels full of atmosphere, where novels are set, movies are made, weddings are celebrated and famous love stories consummated: Villa d'Este on Lake Como, the Hotel Des Bains on the Lido, the Hotel Splendido in Portofino, the Il San Pietro on the Amalfi Coast and the Villa Cimbrone in Ravello - to name just a few. But in Great Escapes Italy , Angelika Taschen also reveals where to find more secret and hidden jewels - from the Locanda Cipriani, a romantic hideaway on the island of Torcello, to the atmospheric Castello di Vicarello in Tuscany.

Review of Hotel Ca' Formenta, Venice
Advantages: Great location, comfortable, quiet, secure Disadvantages: Single bedroom a little basic
...e big luxury hotels in the Venice Lido for 2 or 3 nights as they were available at incredibly low prices, this being early December, the lowest end of the low season for Venice. He shrugged his shoulders and said it would indeed be a bargain but the Lido would be like a ghost town at this time of year and we would soon get fed up with taking the water bus over to Venice every day. He told us that a f...
Advantages: Great hotel, great location? Disadvantages: Perhaps too big!
...Last year in the Sunday supplements I read about the new Hilton Hotel that had just opened in Venice and they had comments on the wonderful views and the roof terrace.
As we had booked to visit Venice in March of this year, and had been several times before this was an opportunity to see another view of Venice from a different area.
I had read that it is a large hotel and thinking about...
