The Jewel of Italy
Posted May 30, 2015 on Hotels
My wife and I arrived from San Diego for a three week+ driving trip through Southern Italy and Sicily. We decided to stay outside Rome for three days before beginning our trip and want a relaxing environment to adjust to our jet lag. This was the perfect place. A little hard to find but as you near Bracciano there are signs for Hotel Clementina everywhere so don't follow your GPS. The hotel grounds and rooms were fantastic and the breakfast served its purpose. We were close to the train station and took the train into Rome - 16 Euros for two roundtrip. Hotel Clementina also serves a gourmet dinner so we took advantage of that two nights in a romantic garden setting. Drive around the lake one day - it's worth the one hour. The best thing about the trip were the hosts, Ricardo and especially, Fausto. Get Fausto to tell his stories - it's worth the effort - we loved him.
