Located in the heart of Sorrento, the Grand Hotel Capodimonte has breathtaking views of Sorrento, the Gulf of Naples, and of the Vesuvius.

Situated away from the crowds, the Hotel Villa Sonia is perched above Taormina in the medieval village of Castelmola with stunning views of Etna, and of Calabria in the distance. This hotel was an historic villa that was transformed into an elegant hotel with true Sicilian charm.
