The Imperial Hotel Tramontano enjoys a wonderful central location poised on the cliff between Marina Piccola and Marina Grande with a view of Marina Piccola. This ensures the hotel has some of the most impressive views over the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. An ideal location all year round, the hotel is only a five minute walk from Piazza Tasso, Sorrento's main piazza, with its boutiques, bars and restaurants and a ten minute stroll from the charming Marina Grande harbour with its colorful fishing boats and characteristic restaurants. Hidden from the main street, the hotel is situated in a beautiful courtyard garden and offers a peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. The swimming pool is enclosed by lush, subtropical gardens featuring a summer bar, relaxing terraces and quiet corners for reading and relaxation. The hotel's elegant lounge bar Quattro Stagioni, decorated with period furniture and an original mosaic, is bordered by a terrace looking out over the bay and is perfect for enjoying a pre-dinner drink. The adjacent restaurant, where you may choose to dine in the evening, also has magnificent views of the coastline.
Throughout its long history as a private mansion and hotel, many great writers, poets and artists have been welcomed at the Imperial Hotel Tramontano. Legend has it that Milton visited during his travels and it was also graced by the writers Goethe, Byron, Scott, Keats and Shelley. The West Wing is the historical birthplace of the famous Italian poet, Torquato Tasso, and where De Curtis composed the song 'Return to Sorrento' on one of the hotel's terraces.
