Take me away Tuesday: Il Convento di Santa Maria di Costantinopoli, Puglia, Italy.

You know how I dream of Italy, and Il Convento di Santa Maria di Costantinopoli is another hotel waiting for me to come and explore it.

Transformed from a private residence, Madonna di Costantinopli will transport you to the heart of Puglia, in the heel of Italy's boot.  If you stay in one of the nine rooms, you have access to the entire "home", which boasts collections of textile and early folk art from all parts of the globe.

I love the way the graceful arches transport you back in time.
