We returned last month from our amazing 16 night trip to Italy. We spent
our first four nights at i Capricci di Merion. This lovely inn is just
actually right in town (which was surprising, since from the photos on
the website, it looked like it was in the remote country), but felt
somewhat isolated because of the landscaping and views of the lake in
We checked in and were shown our room, the Puccini Room, which was a
very pretty suite on the second floor. It had a small sitting
area/kitchen, a bedroom with a wood burning fireplace, and a bathroom
with a big jacuzzi tub (but no shower, which was really the only
negative about this room). The room also features a “star filled sky”
ceiling, which we discovered when we turned out our lights the first
night. Very romantic.
The hotel has built a spa facility on the ground floor of the house
which showcases a beautiful jacuzzi, sauna, and rain shower system.
Couples can reserve the whole area to themselves for an hour at a time
for no charge. We were able to snag a free hour and relaxed in the
jacuzzi for a while on our first day.
The dining area of this inn is beautiful at night, colorful upholstered
chairs, soft lights, and a harpist completes this romantic experience
(though my husband expressed some uneasiness with the pop leanings of
the harpist's repertoire)! And the food was wonderful. We ate there on
our first night, and enjoyed our meal immensely. The strawberry risotto
Breakfast each day consisted of meats, cheese, pastry, fruit and cereal.
It was included in the incredibly low price of our room, 180 euro a
night, but did get a bit boring after about the third day.
From Tuoro as our base for four days, we visited Montefalco, Deruta,
Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio and Cortona, as well as going on a truffle
hunt/cooking class in nearby Citerna.
Besides the lovely meal we had at Capricci di Merion, we also enjoyed
dining at il Teatro in Tuoro, L’Alchimista in Montefalco, L’Antico
Forziere near Deruta (one of the best meals of the entire trip), and La
Bucaccia in Cortona. We’ve done an entire day-by-day trip report which
give a lot more information about the towns and restaurants we visited,
