WATCH: Get neighbourly in Italy's medieval hotel village of Portico di Romagna
This medieval village is home to Al Vecchio Convento Hotel in Florence Italy, a hotel situated in the historical center of the village and run on the concept of Albergo Diffuso loosely translated to "the spread out hotel".
While surrounding villages were falling apart the people of Portico di Romagna stepped in to protect the heritage of their home, it might be one of the few remote villages but a huge tourist attraction nonetheless.
Living in a spread-out hotel means experiencing the whole town from bars to libraries as part of the stay, your neighbour could be one of the locals. Truly no better way to immerse yourself into your holiday.
