Everything’s vertical at this recently refurbished landmark hotel towering 1,000 feet over the Bay of Naples. Renowned for its IMAX views, the family-run Caesar Augustus is a sweet and seductive getaway from the crush of Capri town—providing you have a head for heights. The 53 rooms (including 43 suites) are comfortably chic, with cushy chairs, big beds, and fragrant flowers. Pay extra for the sea-facing rooms with eye-popping vistas from the balconies. Four “special” suites include the one that Egypt’s King Farouk used to block-book for the whole season—even though he only used it for a few weeks each year. Deepen that Caprese tan at the new two-level infinity pool and sundeck or enjoy a glass of wine from the hotel’s private cellar at the terrace bar or Terrazza di Lucullo restaurant, which specializes in flavorful Neapolitan cuisine.
Open April through October.
