Italy is finally open to American travelers, and we couldn’t be more excited. It’s one of our favorite countries to visit: the food, the culture, the history, the people, and the picturesque scenery mingle to create an unforgettable destination.
According to the U.S. Embassy in Italy, all Americans will need to provide to enter the country is a negative COVID-19 test taken within three calendar days of travel. To celebrate, we’ve gathered four of our favorite Inspirato homes throughout the country, from the shores of Lake Como to the rolling hills of Tuscany—book them now or find a little inspiration to start planning your own Italian adventure.
Podere Panico— Tuscany, Italy
Explore the Tuscan countryside from a home base in this restored, six-bedroom, 400-year-old farmhouse perched atop a hill. With both a main house and guest house, the rustic Podere Panico—just 9 miles outside the UNESCO World Heritage city of Siena—boasts incredible historic touches throughout, like vaulted ceilings and brick archways. Enjoy views for miles from the home’s infinity-edge pool and hot tub.
Villa Breva — Lake Como, Italy
Tucked among the celebrity homes along the shores of Lake Como, Villa Breva is a beautifully restored 19th-century, seven-bedroom villa. Take in incredible views of the lake from its private terrace, or enjoy an al fresco dinner in the lakeside garden—right next to the private dock and plunge pool. Fireplaces in both the living room and dining room lend to the home’s historic charm and make for the perfect place to cozy up after a day on the lake.
La Liminoaia — Florence, Italy
The capital of Tuscany is considered the “Cradle of the Renaissance,” and members will be steps from the rich culture of Florence in historic La Limonaia. This four-bedroom, standalone home offers its own private pool—a highly coveted featured within the city—and once played host to Pope Gonzaga, who visited the home often during his trips from Rome in the 1400s. It’s also just a quick walk from the Duomo and amazing Florentine restaurants.
Villa Mare — Amalfi Coast, Italy
Tucked within glamorous Positano along Italy’s postcard-worthy Amalfi Coast, Villa Mare is a stunning favorite in the Inspirato Collection—celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis has even used its locally tiled kitchen as a cooking backdrop. The five-bedroom home is perched cliffside overlooking the Mediterranean and is just a short walk from some of the area’s best beaches. Along with access to a communal outdoor pool, Villa Mare also has a hidden gem tucked within: its own private pool grotto, nestled within the heart of the home.
