Villa Maria, Pescara, Italy

October 19, 2010

Because this trip to Italy is abbreviated, I am only spending one night at my ultimate destination in Pescara. The Sporting Villa Maria Hotel in Pescara is a four star property with excellent conference facilities. I am here to give a keynote talk.

Though the hotel itself is gorgeous, the rooms are not up to world standards from a luxury perspective. Nothing to complain about, just a tad bit generic. Here is a picture of the classical European shower design. Plenty of tile all around, but also a shower curtain as opposed to glass.

The rest of the bathroom is pretty much what you might expect. The ever present bidet plays a key role in Italian bathroom design.

From a purely shower perspective, the Villa Maria earns a four showerhead rating.
