Accommodation

Hotel Raganelli Rome

The 4-star Raganelli Hotel in Rome has a convenient location close to the Vatican City and the charming city centre. Inside, you’ll find that the hotel has been decorated with excellent attention to detail, resulting in a modern yet cosy atmosphere.

Hotel facilities include a bar, roof garden and Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. Bedrooms have private facilities, air-conditioning, hairdryer and TV.

Hotel Dannunzio

Surrounded by a relaxing 6000-m² garden from the late 1800s, Villa Gabriele d'Annunzio is a 10-minute drive from the historic centre of Florence. It features an outdoor swimming pool and free Wi-Fi. This former ancient monastery has been renovated into an elegant hotel, offering a stylish entrance and lounge area. In the lovely breakfast room you will enjoy a generous buffet breakfast. A bar is also available

Hotel Riviera Venezia

"Hotel Riviera is housed in a historic palace and features a panoramic, strategic location in front of the lagoon and the waterbus stop, within quick reach of Venice’s historic centre. From the waterbus stop located just outside the hotel you can reach St. Mark’s Square, in Venice, in about 10 minutes. The waterbus stop offers regular service to Marco Polo Airport, Piazzale Roma Bus Terminal and Venezia Santa Lucia Railway Station as well. Lido is more affordable and tranquil than Venice - and yet very close to it. The seaside resort has also attractions of its own, including the beach (the hotel can arrange sun beds and umbrellas on request) and the Venice Film Festival."
