Byblos Art Hotel Villa Amista
Byblos Art Hotel Villa Amistà
is located in the heart of Valpolicella just a few miles from Verona. Originally built as a sixteenth-century Venetian villa that was renovated in the seventeenth century, today it exists as part luxury hotel and part art gallery, melding seventeenth-century classic design with modern décor, furnishings, and a permanent collection of works by such famous contemporary artists as Cindy Sherman, Damien Hirst, Robert Indiana, and Takashi Murakami. This inventive marriage of past and present is the brainchild of Italian architect Alessandro Mendini, who also serves as director of the Byblos Home collection, and it makes the hotel the perfect locale for guests seeking a truly unique boutique hotel experience. Guests can further bask in the atmosphere of refined sophistication at Peter’s Bar for cocktails and appetizers and later with a dinner at the notable Restaurant Atelier, where the avant-garde artistry and élite cuisine of Chef Giorgio Schifferegger unite.Our Family Loved Most
