The Imperial Hotel Tramontano, overlooking the most beautiful part of the Gulf of Naples, nourished the romantic culture of the picturesque, sublime and landscapes of 19th century travellers visiting Sorrento. Along with the classic, refined and elegant style: the oldest wing dates back to the 16th century, and its architecture represents the most viewed image of Sorrento worldwide. In the background, the imposing profile of Vesuvius is silhouetted against a sky blazing with romantic sunsets. All of this, in a unique and incomparable setting, guarantees an unforgettable stay in Sorrento. The Imperial Hotel Tramontano has had the great privilege of playing host to the most important personages of the literary world. The world-famous song "Torna a Surriento" was composed by G. B. De Curtis on the Tramontano terrace. The vast, elegant halls and lounges, sparkling with reflections from the sea, are decorated with frescoes, majolica, soft oriental carpets, period statues, old masters and priceless Sorrentine inlaid furniture. They mirror the finery, meticulous style and eye for detail that are the distinguishing marks of the entire hotel. Designed in 1888 by English landscape artists, the garden custodies rare, centuries-old Mediterranean and sub-tropical plants. Surrounded by local citrus trees and the blooms of both old and young varieties of Camellias. By day the Restaurant reflects the blue of the sea and sky, while in the evening it reserves a romantic atmosphere with the delicate pattern of fishing lights. The richness of detail in the suites and rooms, with views over the Gulf or over the Mediterranean park filled with rare centuries-old plants, makes them unique, every one different.
