Imperial Hotel Tramontano

Neapolitan Riviera, Sorrento

The Imperial Hotel Tramontano enjoys a wonderful central location poised on the cliff between Marina Piccola and Marina Grande with spectacular views over the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. An ideal location 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 colourful fishing boats and characteristic seafood 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 West Wing of this elegant property is the historical birthplace of the famous Italian poet, Torquato Tasso, and De Curtis composed the song 'Return to Sorrento' on one of the hotel's stunning terraces.

Hotel child prices apply to ages 2-12 years.
The hotel has 109 rooms.

  • Coastal setting overlooking the Bay of Naples
  • Five-minute walk from Sorrento

About the location
From its prime clifftop position, Sorrento has wide-angle views across the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius. Palms and citrus groves cluster around grand villas and elegant hotels, and along the spaghetti-thin lanes of the old town you’ll find tiny trattorias and a generous helping of shops (bottles of limoncello, brightly painted ceramics and bespoke sandals are all must-buys). The main square, Piazza Tasso, is the place to head for a morning espresso, while the waterfront Marina Grande is the ideal spot for a dinner of freshly netted seafood. Sorrento’s location also makes it the perfect springboard for exploring more of the Neapolitan Riviera. Amalfi Coast towns like Positano and Ravello are in easy reach, as are the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Hop on a boat, meanwhile, and you can skim over to the islands of Capri and Ischia.
