A spacious suite at Il Salviatino in Tuscany, Italy
In the hillside village of Fiesole overlooking Florence, Il Salviatino drifts like a Medieval dream above one of Italy's most romantic cities. Serving as a palazzo in the 1400s, the privately owned villa has been lovingly restored by local artisans, blending stunning ancient frescoes and mosaics with a rich contemporary décor (think leather and Tuscan linens) that is opulent without being over the top. Among the swooningly aristocratic guest rooms, the best choices for lovebirds include the two-level Marcello Suite at the top of the villa's tower and the Ojetti Suite with a private balcony and rooftop Jacuzzi. Couples can dine on simple, seasonal dishes at the divine Le Serre, indulge in spa treatments that incorporate products from one of the most noted perfume houses in Florence, or simply seek out a quiet corner of the gardens for a tryst à deux. That's amore!
