Residenza Farnese Breakfast

Brad and I have enjoyed breakfast at lots of wonderful places in Italy. HANDS DOWN, the best breakfasts in Italy are Diana's creations at the Baur B&B in Acqui Terme! My next vote would go to Capri's Hotel Quisisana. The Doria Park in Lerici, Porta San Mamolo in Bologna and now, the Hotel Residenza Farnese would all get honorable mention.

How about a sunny expresso, or a lucky latte?

Just beautiful - food and photos! I am hungry just looking at it!

Debra:

The Farnese really improved their breakfast offering!
It was much simpler in 2006 (when they were just completing their renovations).
But I do remember all the beautiful pieces of china where no two coffee cups were the same.
For a hotel breakfast my favorite is Nazionale Montecitorio.

Palma, I've stayed many times at the Residenza in Farnese and always enjoy it -- and its great breakfasts!

Still, I think my new favourite is the Albergo Annunziata in Ferrara. I didn't like the hotel as much as I expected (pathetic AC -- in June!) But the largest breakfast selection I have seen in an Italian hotel. An entire table of meats, one of cheeses, and an enormous selection of fresh fruit. Most importantly, coconut yogurt (which is so hard to find!)

Wow,Palma that is an amazing spread.We tried to make reservations there in 2004, but they were closed for renovations. Next time.....

I have as of yet to experience a breakfast like this in Italy. Looks wonderful.

Just once, as a total splurge we stayed at the Hotel Lungarno in Florence and their breakfasts were unbelievable. I still dream about a little pastry filled with almonds.

I think I am going to eventually do a post like this also. Right now off the top of my head, my fave breakfasts have been: Hotel Doria, Hotel Porta San Mamolo, Hotel Victoria (in Torino), Hotel Palazzo Bocci (in Spello), Hotel Eden (in Sirmione) and B&B La Romea (in Lucca). The B&B in Florence also had good breakfasts but it was not buffet style. As you can see, breakfast is important to me :)
