Summer is in full swing, and I have been reminiscing with friends about their summer travels. I was telling my friend who just got back from Rome how much I love the website Mr & Mrs Smith. Mr & Mrs Smith is my go to travel website! I prefer staying in small boutique hotels over large hotel chains. They review each and every boutique hotel, and give you a detailed overview of what to do in the area. Unlike some of the other on-line hospitality booking companies they have great customer service. In the event you need to make changes to your reservation, or have any issues when traveling you always have someone to contact. Here are two hotels in Italy that I discovered on Mr. and Mrs. Smith that did not disappoint.
Portrait Suites Roma – This hotel is a part of the Ferragamo collection so you can only image the attention to detail and decor in this Roman pied-á-terre. It’s 14 apartments in an Italian townhouse in the perfect location near the Spanish Steps. This is a great place to stay as a romantic getaway. Our room had the most beautiful balcony overlooking the city, and we sat on the rooftop deck sipping our aperol spritz’s!
Palazzo Avino – This is another great hotel for a romantic getaway. Probably one of my favorite breakfasts I have ever had with the most magnificent views. Ravello is our favorites spot on the Amalfi coast not overloaded with tourists and still maintains it’s authentic Italian vibe. Sit pool side and sip a cocktail or take a ride to the beach and soak up the sun!
