Even if your budget doesnt allow for a carefree Roman holiday (where you rent scooters and traipse around Italy in ballet slippers with Gregory Peck) you can still enjoy la bella vita in San Francisco.
Villa Florence boutique hotel is refreshingly retro-European in design, with an Italian café and restaurant.
Did we mention the free wine tasting in the lobby at 5 p.m. every evening? Si!! Relax on a leopard skin wingback or chaise longue, enjoying your fine Napa vintage and a palm-fringed view of Audrey Hepburn as Roman Holiday plays nightly on the big screen.
