A lavish southern Italy stay at a historically glamorous hotel with an outdoor pool near the centre of Amalfi – includes breakfast, a town centre shuttle, and all travel

For a luxurious set-up overlooking what is regarded as Europe's most beautiful coastline, this grand hotel has living la dolce vita down to a fine art. Escape to the Italian coast and spend days wandering around sun-filled piazzas and lazing on bigou beaches, before returning to the opulent Grand Hotel Excelsior. Built in 1962 by Gaetano Amendola (a former mayor of Amalfi), the hotel has played host to many illustrious guests over the years, including musicians, politicians, and film stars.

Nowadays, it enchants a whole new generation of visitors with a flawless service, old-world decor, and sweeping sea views. Carved into a hillside, the property flaunts a luxe vibe throughout, but it is most apparent in the thoughtfully furnished guest rooms and suites. Elsewhere, you’ll find two wonderful dining spots for delicious Mediterranean cuisine, an outdoor pool lined with sun loungers for day-long bronzing, and a large terrace for relaxing with a few glasses of fine wine. But perhaps the real highlight is the Mare Club, the hotel’s private beach that’s accessed by a daily bus shuttle service.
