From the food to the scenery and the culture, Italy will always be one of our favorite destinations—and our members agree.
But with so many incredible Inspirato accommodations across the country, honing in on which home to stay in can be tough. But if you know what kind of vacation you’re looking for, we’ve made it easy. Read on to see our suggestions for where to stay based on the kind of trip you’re seeking. (Though you really can’t go wrong with any of them.)
If you want to stay in the heart of Rome
Once the home of iconic fashion designer Valentino, this chic penthouse apartment is one of the newest additions to the Inspirato Collection. Garavani is nestled within the heart of the city, just a 10-minute walk from the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and more. Take in sweeping views of the Eternal City from its rooftop terrace (private hot tub included.)
If you’re an art aficionado
Jaw-dropping Lusso Moderno is a stunner in the heart of Florence, designed by22 renowned architect James Cavagnari and featured in Architectural Digest and Vanity Fair—you’ll understand why as soon as you see its rich collection of eclectic pieces. You’ll also be just steps from some of the city’s must-see attractions, like the Duomo and Sant-Ambrogio market.
If you want to get away from it all
Situated within Tuscany’s iconic rolling hills, Podere Panico is 9 miles outside the UNESCO World Heritage town of Siena—and if you’re aiming for a relaxing getaway, there’s no better place. Completely surrounded by olive groves, you’ll find tranquility comes easily here; especially from the infinity-edge pool and hot tub. Exposed wood beams and brick archways throughout add to the 400-year-old farmhouse’s rustic charm, paired with modern touches like a sauna and fitness equipment.
If you’re a history buff
18th-century frescoes adorn the walls and ceiling of this incredible historic apartment, tucked within Florence’s Palazzo Bardi. La Dafne’s industrial-meets-Renaissance feel is the perfect home base for a history buff exploring Florence—the 15th-century palazzo is even credited as the birthplace of lyrical opera. Plus, you’ll be just steps from the famous Arno River and plenty of restaurants, shops, and museums.
If you yearn to be near water
Tucked right along the shores of celebrity-favorite Lake Como, 19th-century Villa Breva was beautifully restored, with its own private dock, terrace, lakeside garden, and plunge pool—everything you’d need for the perfect Italian holiday on the water. The home also offers seven bedrooms, a solarium, a small gym, and cozy fireplaces throughout.
If the whole family is coming
An intergenerational getaway to Italy would be even more special with a stay at Il Campanile, a group of three Inspirato homes that can be booked together. This stunning historic compound was once a small village, evident in its on-site chapel and expansive grounds. A pool, tennis court, and outdoor pizza oven are perfect for when everyone wants to gather—and three separate homes give everyone space when they’d rather not.
