Hotel Palumbo is one of the oldest family-owned establishments in Italy, playing host to stellar personages from all disciplines of the arts – Wagner, who composed on the piano in the lobby; Bogart, filming Beat the Devil; a young Jack and Jackie Kennedy; Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, whose relationship blossomed while filming a scene (later deleted) from Mr. & Mrs. Smith here – diplomats and aristocrats.
Housed in a medieval palace dating back to the 12th century, Hotel Palumbo still preserves reminiscences of the original medieval structure of Palazzo Confalone offering a magical atmosphere with refined hospitality. Ancient marble columns, mosaic-tile floors, and museum-quality antiques contribute to the intimate charm of this luxury, Amalfi Coast hotel. Time stands still at the Hotel Palumbo or that is how it feels.
The Confalone Restaurant features frescoed rooms with a stunning painting of San Giovanni Battista by Guido Reni, student of Caravaggio, and a beautiful terrace overlooking the picturesque landscape, where guests can indulge in excellent Mediterranean dishes.
Hotel Palumbo produces its own wine under the Episcopio label. You can also tour the Episcopio wine cellar.
