Caruso Place – Boutique & Wellness Suites
Palazzo Berio, Via Toledo, 256, 80132 Napoli NA, Italy
As the biggest city of southern Italy and the capital city of Campania, Naples is said to be one of the most chaotic cities in the world. The birthplace of pizza, a city of culture and light, including a secretive underground, is a great starting point for the exploration of the city centre, Naples bay and the (to this day active) volcano of Mount Vesuvius. Only half an hour drive away is the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, rich in archaeological sites, a city that has been covered in volcanic ash since the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. The Amalfi Coast and its famous Capri Island are located nearby, inviting you to experience Italy’s natural treasures. A nearby airport, an excellent public transport services (buses and trains) and numerous options for taking day trips (by boats or ferries) from Naples, will also convince you to visit it.
Hotel in the centre of vivacious Naples: Caruso Place Boutique & Wellness Suites
If Naples is a starting point of your exploration of Southern Italy, I advise you to book the hotel right in the heart of the city centre. Caruso Place Boutique & Wellness Suites is an ideal choice, only one step away from the lively street (or a balcony) where you immediately feel the city’s throb. The hotel is located on the renowned Via Toledo Street, one of the main Naples shopping streets, directly opposite the impressive shopping gallery Galleria Umberto I. The Royal Palace of Naples, the Teatro San Carlo and the castles Castel Nuovo and (a step further) Castel dell’Ovo are your neighbours during the stay. Naples port also offers many choices for taking day trips, with my personal favourites being the small islands of Ischia and Procida (read more about it in my blog post Day trip to Procida). The charming Capri Island is a great option too and Amalfi Coast, accessible by sea or land.
‘O sole mio, ‘o sole mioooooo…
Caruso Place Boutique & Wellness Suites great location is not its only strong suit, as the boutique hotel with ten rooms (7 suites) is located inside the historic XVI Century Berio Palace, a work by the famous engineer and architect Luigi Vanvitelli. The owners of the newly opened hotel were kind enough to guide me through the history of the building and introduced me to the hotel’s attentively picked interior décor. Each room carries its significant story, being rich in minor details, filled with family history and accompanied by the music, one that follows you everywhere; at the lounge area where you can enjoy a breakfast and Naples pastries, on the hallways or in the rooms. Lyrics of the famous Italian song ‘O sole mio walk you down to your room, where you can take a deserved rest from the wandering and excitement of the city. Rooms and Suites are incredibly spacious, equipped with a wellness bathroom (our room even had a Jacuzzi and all the bathrooms have chomotheraputic lights), some even come with a fireplace. Owners of the Caruso Place hotel have been a regular feature in the tourist department and are therefore well aware of their costumer’s needs and wishes during their travels. At the reception, the staff is of course more than happy to help you with any question regarding your further travels throughout this part of Italy.
Caruso Place Boutique & Wellness Suites is located at the very centre of Naples, which combines classical and modern, and therefore presents an ideal choice for those who wish to explore the southern part of Italy.
