Talk about wander-lust! The gay porn travelogue has certainly come a long way. First it was Bjorn, then Bel Ami, and then, suddenly, everyone was getting into the act--making these lush, postcard-like videos, featuring great locales as well as lots of hot fucking and sucking.

Since I didn’t know IMD or Lucas Kazan before this film I had only mild expectations--but I’m happy to report that Hotel Italia offers both the heat and the beauty you’d expect from any of the major players. It’s a terrific mix of scenery and solid action. In addition to the great cast of sexy Italian hunks, Kazan offers up a gorgeous portrait of smalltown Italy. Maybe I’ve watched The Talented Mr. Ripley too many times, but no porn film has ever made me dream of travel this much... The Italy shown here is a sight to behold, and the lead character, Dario, has one of those faces I could never resist...

Dario lives with his parents, who run a small hotel. This is the story of his last summer in Italy, he tells us, before moving to America and starting college... In scene one, Dario and his best friend Ettore wrestle on a hotel bed--a great romp--and eventually exchange blowjobs and fuck each other. Meanhwhile, the sexy Dad has woken up, and stands outside the door with his hard-on, listening... Later, Dario & Ettore relax on a rocky beach. But Dario really has his eyes on new guest Erik, while his friend fantasizes about a gorgeous pair of guys near the water... (The fantasy guys are shown in a slo-mo shower, and a side-by-side j/o session.)

Meanwhile, Dario’s father is getting closer to acting on his feelings: he ignores the attention of a body-builder guest, but he can’t keep his eyes off Ettore in the shower as he shaves. The next major sex scene involves a buff guest with a goatee and the reception clerk--who locks the lobby doors and proceeds to “greet” the man in his own special way! From upstairs, Ettore watches them fuck--until he’s caught by a bellhop, resulting in some split-level sex as the upstairs pair blow each other to the sounds of fucking below... Later, Dad finally gets it on with his son’s friend, who gives him a good pounding. But that’s okay, since it looks like Dario has moved on anyway. After watching each other from a distance, Dario and Erik fall into each others arms--and onto each other’s cocks--in an abandoned belltower. Eric fucks Dario back at the hotel in a nicely romantic finale.

Casting is exceptional all around, although several of the guys aren’t shown in full hardcore action. The disc has more extras than I’m used to seeing: good cast bios, a slide show and a “making-of” featurette which includes publicity shots, nightclub strip action, and some audition footage.

If you like ‘em tall, dark and handsome, or dream of flying off to the Continent, this one is for you! All in all, a fantastic disc that will get plenty of play at my house. That’s amore!
