Once the mansion home of a nobleman, Grand Hotel Ambasciatori is adorned with all the regal touches you would expect from one of Italy’s elite. Floors inlaid with marble in the communal areas, and Vietri tiles in the rooms, are complemented with rich fabrics and elegant furnishings to create a decidedly sophisticated ambience. Outside, there are flower-filled gardens and quaint terraces, perfect for enjoying a meal al fresco with the views of Vesuvius for company, while the hotel elevator will whizz you down to the bathing platform, should you wish to go for a refreshing dip; there’s a bar down here too, so no need to tear yourself away. Aside from swimming in the bay, you can also spend your time exploring the Museo Correale di Terranova – a stone’s throw from the hotel, wander into Sorrento itself to enjoy the many shops and eateries, or catch a boat to the island of Capri for the day.
