An elegant look towards history
In 1822 the Italian notary Giuseppe Pagano began hosting travellers in his villa for the pleasure of long conversations and often, his guests were artists, poets, writers, architects, painters and musicians, all who showed their gratitude by painting the walls, writing poems, singing and playing in what was dubbed the ‘Artists’ Hotel,’ as it became to be called. Today, the first hotel in Capri is being transformed to reopen as an elegant, exclusive haven.
Hotel La Palma boasts and ideal location – it is just around the corner from the famous Piazza Umberto I – well-known as the ‘Piazzetta’ and very close to some of the most notable sites of Capri: Giardini di Augusto, Via Krupp, La Certosa and the iconic Faraglioni. Another of the island’s best-known, must-visit natural sites in easy reach from the hotel is the ‘Grotta Azzurra’ – the Blue Grotto – a dark cavern where the sea glows electric blue, the result of sunlight passing through an underwater cave.
Each of the 50 rooms – including 18 suites – offer its own private balcony or terrace. Visitors will be able to enjoy true Italian-fashion restaurants with delightful cuisine and breathtaking views of Capri, La Palma Beach Club and the amazing social life of this pearl of the Italian coast.
