Built right into Monopoli’s ancient seafront ramparts, the luxury Italian hotel Don Ferrante is a labyrinthine hideaway: an elegant tangle of narrow staircases, pretty patios and vaulted limestone ceilings. With just 10 rooms, this whitewashed Puglian boutique luxury hotel retreat charms guests into a slower pace of life.

Linger on the terrace over fresh Mediterranean fare, slink into the dinky rooftop pool and soak up those dazzling Adriatic views. This is one of Puglia’s luxury Italian hotels that you must enjoy during your Italy trip of best luxury Italian hotels. It can also host your wedding in Italy.
