Best Luxury Hotels In Naples

Unlike other tourist cities in Italy Naples isn’t a looker, but what it lacks in head-turning architecture it makes up for in other ways, one being it’s the home of pizza, needs we say more! Naples is a modern city, rich in history, and dotted with countless churches, a medieval university and not to mention it’s the gateway to the Amalfi Coast and idyllic Sorrento is not too far away either. If you are heading to the city, here is our list of our favourite luxury hotels there.
