Hotel Santa Caterina
The original grande dame of Amalfi Coast hotels still reigns in Belle Époque splendor on the coastal road just outside the town of Amalfi. Now in its fourth generation of Gambardella family management, this 1904 looker has rooms spread across the main building, two villas, and a two cozy honeymoon suites. All are filled with original local antiques and decorated with hand-painted or pure-white ceramic floor tiles and whitewashed walls. Two glassed-in elevators descend to a private beach. As you stroll through the lovely secluded, terraced gardens and citrus orchards, it’s obvious why Liz Taylor and Richard Burton chose to hide out here.
