In Venice, take a look at Luna Baglioni.

There's now a Virtuoso hotel in Bologna, Grand Hotel Majestic Gia Baglioni —

Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
Daily Buffet breakfast, for up to two in room guests
$100 USD Equivalent Food & Beverage credit, to be utilized during stay (not combinable, not valid on room rate, no cash value if not redeemed in full)
Early check-in/late check-out subject to availability

Florence: originally thought Portrait Suites. I know they are part of Lugarno but is the hotel proper a better plan?

Venice: originally wanted to splurge on the Gritti Palace but maybe could save a bit by choosing the Bauer instead?

We are also staying a few nights at Castiglione de Bosco. And I need a recommendation for a hotel in Bologna where we will stay for two nights.

If it matters, this will be my first trip to Italy.
Thanks for any insight/advice
