It seems strange to pay such a large amount of money to go and visit what is basically a hotel. But it is so much more. We had not planned to visit the Villa Amista but unfortunately one of our friends broke his ankle just before we travelled, which forced us to look for non-walking activities. All of us agreed that it turned out to be a great highlight of our trip to the region. After being transferred by taxi from the centre of Verona, we (just two couples) were met in the cool and spacious entrance hall of the hotel by a young man who was extremely knowledgeable about the myriad of contemporary art pieces which decorate this beautiful old building. It is akin to a living and lively museum, in as much as you can sit on pieces that are designed for sitting and touch pieces which cost thousands of pounds. They have all been collected by the Italian owner of the hotel, who was a founder of the Byblos fashion house. He visits the hotel each day and just happened to walk through while we were there. The tour was fascinating thanks, in the main, to the amount of detail provided by our guide. At the end of the tour, which extended into the stunning grounds, where other art-works were housed, we visited the winery where another, equally knowledgeable, young man talked us through the history of the Valpolicella region and its wines. We were able to taste a variety of the wines, which were served with a variety of cheeses and meats.
It was a fascinating afternoon and our overriding impression was that we would like to return to stay in the hotel.
