Originally a 13th-century monastery, the five-star luxury rated  Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi is a fine example of a sympathetically refurbished monument. It’s perched on top of an 80-meter cliff, with spectacular views of the Amalfi coast. But it’s also only 5 minutes’ walk from Amalfi’s harbor and town center.

This place with its lemon gardens, the monks’ walk and the panoramic views have been an inspiration for artists, painters, photographers and ultimately for travelers coming from all over the world.

The complex was built at the beginning of the 13th century and was recorded in 1214 as a priory owned by Cistercian monks; it became an abbey in 1223.

In 1583 the monastery was entrusted to the Capuchin Friars who remained there for more than two centuries and carried out a vast restoration and reconstruction project. After the Friars were expelled in 1813, the complex was turned over to the Archbishop of Amalfi who first used it as a dining hall and later entrusted it to private parties which turned it into an inn.

In 1885 the monastery was used as a hotel for the first time and another series of transformations was initiated in order to meet the increasing tourism demand.

The Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi today is one of the most exclusive location of the Amalfi Coast, located few steps from the centre of Amalfi.

The Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi is located in the frame of the amazing city of Amalfi, UNESCO “World Heritage Site”, a treasure preserved between promontories and beaches with extraordinary views.

Famous symbol of the “Gran Tour”, the hotel is still considered one of the most precious place to enjoy the Amalfi Coast, surrounded by art and ancient masterpieces, is an exclusive combination of charm and elegance.

Modern facilities are well combined with the ancient setting of the Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi: history and contemporary details harmoniously coexist.

The Amalfi Coast lies on the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula. It is one of the most popular seaside destinations in Italy’s Campania region and, with its breathtakingly panoramic Amalfi Drive is considered one of the most beautiful stretches of coast in the whole of Europe.

 

Amalfi became in 839 AD the first Italian maritime republic and it is now the largest town in the region.

Named after a beautiful nymph, loved by Hercules, Amalfi is the principal town on the spectacular 'Amalfi Coast', situated on the south side of the Sorrento peninsular which forms the southern end of the Bay of Naples. The area has long been a favourite destination for tourists who come for the spectacular scenery, the dramatic views, the attractive seascape and the pretty seaside towns of Vietri sul mare, Maiori, Minori, Amalfi, Ravello and Positano. There are ferry trips that leave Salerno and call in at several of these towns, before going on to Sorrento and Capri.
