LOS ANGELES- Reported by Elite Traveler, this private jet lifestyle magazine
The Salviatino Collection is pleased to announce its newest property, Palazzo Victoria. The five-star hotel is located within the Roman walls of Verona and is the sister property to Il Salviatino, a luxurious restored 15th century villa in Florence.
Palazzo Victoria opened its doors on March 22, 2012 in Verona’s historic quarter, introducing a new type of luxury to the celebrated destination. The hotel is located centrally on Corso Porta Borsari with 71 accommodations ranging from Deluxe rooms to iconic Victoria Suites.
Built on carefully preserved Medieval and Roman ruins featured throughout the public areas and rooms, Palazzo Victoria effortlessly blends rich heritage, seamless service, sophisticated technology and bespoke amenities.
Rooms and suites are generously proportioned with dramatic high ceilings, charming wrap around iron balconies, in-room antiquities, and original Veronese décor. From traditional shutters, original frescoes, textile wallpapers, mahogany furniture and hand made linens, Palazzo Victoria represents the very best of Italian culture and luxury living.
The hotel features an internal garden complete with columns and courtyard furniture, affording plenty of natural light and an al-fresco ambience. A conference room accommodates 70 people theatre-style and doubles as a museum of ancient ruins, while a vibrant Lobby Louge offers a Bar and Café, Wine Bar, Champagnerie and relaxation area. This is the perfect spot to people watch or unwind with a glass of wine after a busy day on the town.
In a region rich with local cuisine, Palazzo Victoria’s dining concept is simple and encourages guests to explore the city’s gastronomy. Overseen by The Salviatino Collection’s Executive Chef Carmine Caló, the hotel will offer brasserie style dining throughout the day including a menu of traditional homemade Italian cuisine with fresh and seasonal produce. Al fresco dining is available in the hotel’s beautiful courtyard which is also accessible direct from the main shopping street. This oasis is great for those wishing to soak up the vibrant atmosphere and Mediterranean aromas.
Verona served as the setting for Shakespearean tales, and it is easy to see why. The charming city centre is steeped in history, haute couture and is a hub for traditional and fusion cuisine. Nestled in Northern Italy, Verona is the ideal ’48 hour’ destination and a perfect pilgrimage for romantics and culture creatures alike. Alternatively, the city – which is a little over an hour from both Milan and Venice – makes a fantastic base for exploring the neighbouring regions, including wine-tasting in Valpolicella, sailing on Lake Garda, or skiing in the Dolomites. In the city where Romeo met Juliet, anything can happen.
