Called the New Albergo Diffuso Hotel, the hotel blends blend of luxury and local culture in a hotel that offers suites, a hotel, a spa, family resort, and more. Because today’s tourists want a more immersive experience, the Granducato di Bracciano will allow guests to experience the art, culture, cuisine, and history while still enjoying the amenities of a hotel.

Albergo Diffuso Hotel translates to mean “widespread hotel” and relates to the fact that different parts of the hotel will be in different parts of the town.


Granducato di Bracciano will include:

  • 13 luxury suites
  • A boutique hotel
  • A family resort with a pool
  • A historic palace featuring a spa and beauty center
  • A traditional trattoria
  • A gourmet restaurant
  • A wine bar with bistro
  • A Champagne Bar
  • A D.J. Bar


Located 25 minutes from Rome, Bracciano sits on the shore of Lago di Bracciano, a volcanic lake. From the Middle Ages to the Renaissance period, Bracciano attracted princes, popes, and the aristocracy to its beautiful lakes (Martignano is a second volcanic lake in the area) and natural parks. Etruscans and Romans inhabited Bracciano, and the Romans built an aqueduct to bring the lakes’ waters to Rome.

One of the most famous landmarks of the village is the medieval Orsini-Odescalchi Castle. It has long been a elegant wedding venue for couples from all over the world, including Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
