Our selection of Italy’s green hotels

With no two hotels or resorts ever alike, what we often find is that each ‘green hotel’ has a certain strength - perhaps some are more community and socially beneficial, while others have a keen focus on responsible procurement or wildlife conservation. That’s why it’s important for us to highlight why we celebrate them as green hotels in Italy. 

Some hotels are miles ahead, having won local and international awards for their sustainability efforts, while others may be small and local but have a really low impact by default.
