Europe is a continent filled with romance, whether it is reflected in the food, hospitality or culture, so if Italians say that Positano is the most romantic place on Earth, it probably is! After all, many cinematographers chose this small cliffside village on southern Italy’s Amalfi Coast to serve as the backdrop for some of the most romantic films ever shown on screen featuring stars including Marcello Mastroianni, Maria Callas, Gregory Peck and Liza Minnelli. A real life romance took place here as well – it is said that Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor fell in love in this scenic spot! If you’re looking for tranquil and spacious accommodations in a prime location, stay at Il San Pietro Di Positano.
Carlino Cinque, a descendant of the owner of one of the oldest hotels in Italy, dreamed up this resplendent hotel where you will definitely have sweet dreams! Cinque turned the hotel into a beautiful gem along the awe-insprinng Amalfi coast. Offering stunning views of the entire coast from Faraglioni to Capri, Hotel Il San Pietro Di Positano is superbly situated, especially since it extends along a cape overlooking the sea. The hotel offers complete privacy and even offers free 24-hour shuttle service. Stroll through the village’s famous streets boasting architectural masterpieces and vibrant colors.

Each of the hotel’s 62 rooms and suites have a terrace where you can take in splendid views of the sea. Standard and Deluxe offer various size rooms and terraces, while special rooms feature unique features including glass walls and other details.
