Fodor's Expert Review Grand Hotel Parco dei Principi

Via Rota 44, Sorrento, Campania, 80067, Italy

This stylish 1960s hotel, designed by Giò Ponti, is all white walls and blue-glass accents; outside blooms the fabled Parco dei Principi, a lush 19th-century giardino, and paths lead to a romantic, bayside, Rococo villa—a splendiferous setting for the pool area. A shuttle bus connects with downtown Sorrento.
