The views from the elevated Grand Hotel Capodimonte are quite simply, spectacular. Mount Vesuvius and the stunning Bay of Naples are sights none could bore of. Laze the days away just dreaming and relaxing, or enjoy the idyllic cascading pools and gentle evening entertainment. The hotel is close to the old town and fishing harbour of Marina Grande, and for those wishing to explore outside of Sorrento, boat trips to the neighbouring islands of Ischia and Capri can easily be arranged, as well as coach trips to near by Vesuvius and the town of Positano.
