9 Castle Hotels in Italy You Gotta See

Castle hotels in Italy give you a backstage pass to some of Italy’s most incredible residences.

Even if you don’t posses an ounce of blue blood in your veins – sleeping in a castle will help you channel your inner Old Royal — thankfully minus the endless hours of needlepoint by the dimly lit fire.

Actually I’d argue you’ll live more like a royal than the last royals which inhabited these castles. Twelfth century princesses didn’t have complimentary wi-fi, heated floors or jetted tubs – pretty standard currency of the modern traveller now isn’t it?

So my vote is that if you love history and you love Italy – get thy self checked-in to a castle hotel in Italy.
