Italy has some of the most admired artefacts in history and arts, and more UNESCO world heritage sites than any other country in the world, yet there are so many less known magical places that are a must see at least once in a lifetime. These places, whetherit be a palladian villa on the Prosecco way, a well-being retreat under the Tuscansun or a refined resort overlooking the gulf of Arzachena, are just what we’re looking for.
We like to think we can help travelers discover new off the beaten path destinations and bespoke experiences to unveil the most authentic Italian traditions. At AUTENTICO we only endorse the finest family-owned boutique hotels with unique attributes in terms of location, identity and excellence in customer service.
AUTENTICO is an Italian collection of luxury hotels, which all share the same passion for excellence and have one common goal: ensure their guests feel at home, away from home, and help make their stay memorable.
