Sceptre’s B&B Categories
We offer two different categories of B&B's to choose from, our standard B&B program, which does not guarantee private bath, and our ensuite program, which guarantees private baths in every room. Regardless of the program, all our B&B’s are unique and charming structures. They will be decorated with class and furnished in a warm and comfortable manner while still reflecting the personal tastes of your hosts. Please be aware that while all of our B&B's are comfortable, clean and welcoming, our ensuite program includes the cream of our B&B crop. The following characteristics distinguish many of these B&B's:
- Prestigious location within the respective urban or country setting. They will more likely be located near city center attractions like Piazza Navona or the Fountain of Trevi, while in the country they might be centrally located in a prestigious area like the Chianti wine region with a stunning view of the countryside
- Rich and lavish décor and furnishings. You might find antique furniture, artisan craftsmanship, and the superior quality comforts that will make a stay truly memorable
- Being situated in a villa or palazzo of great artistic and architectural significance.
Italy's Diverse Regions
Italy is a country that should be enjoyed not just from the perspective of different cities but also from the differing cuisine, culture, and landscapes of each region Our B&B program offers you a selection of properties located in five different regions, each with their own unique characteristics and qualities. You can spend all your time exploring one region or visit as many as you like! The beauty of our program is that you can see precisely where each B&B is located simply by referring to our B&B map, an infinitely useful tool for those who like to know exactly where their vacation will take them. Of course we recommend getting a little lost on the way...
NOW THAT YOU’VE BOOKED-Here’s How Our Italy B&B Program Works

Click on a region to visit an interactive map showing all Sceptre B&B's with a reference table below detailing B&B category (standard or private bath), available room type (Single, Double, Triple), and of course the name and location of each B&B. Once you've found a B&B you'd like to reserve, click on the name to pull up a profile with images. In the upper right hand corner of the profile page you will see a “CLICK HERE TO RESERVE THIS B&B” Icon. Clicking on this will take you to a request form asking you to provide the following:

Remember, you can choose B&B's from any of the 5 regions included in the program, but you must stay a minimum of 2 NIGHTS in each B&B except for Venice which is a 3 NIGHT minimum. Once all your nights are confirmed you’re done, sit back and relax in anticipation of a fantastic Italian Adventure.
