"Fells like home and feels like hotel", for those who don't like staying in hotels; this is the new form of hospitality which has the name Albergo Diffuso. Rooms and apartments are in different buildings, which are located within the same urban core. The adjective "scattered" therefore indicate a horizontal and not a vertical structure like the one of traditional hotels. The Albergo Diffuso is the ideal accommodation for those interested in staying in a prestigious urban context, in living in contact with the residents, rather than with other tourists. The scattered hotel has proved to be particularly suitable for enhancing villages and towns with historic centers of artistic or architectural interest, which in this way can recover and enhance old unused buildings.
