The Hotel Caruso Belvedere, a former 11th century palace, perched on the cliffs of the Amalfi Coast in the district of Ravello, is an outstanding triumph of the restorer's skill.
Edilizia Interna has been in charge of the overall restoration of the building, with particular care for recovery of the archaeological remains that are now enchanting suites.
In compliance with the local style, the floors of the suites feature hand-decorated ceramics and cotto chiaro from Vietri - Salerno while the bathrooms are enhanced by Greek Ariston white marble.
The unquestionable star of the hotel is the infinity pool, which magically "disappears" into the beautiful blue of the sea.
