Sorrento Palace


Overlooking the Bay of Naples, Sorrento Palace rises sheer above the sea on a cliff. With arguably one of the greatest views in the world and a splendour rarely seen, both inside and outside, Sorrento Palace has rightfully been described as “Paradise”.

Sorrento Palace has a long history that can be traced back to the 1st century A.D., when Agrippa Postumus, grandson of Emperor Augustus, first made it his residence. Since then it has been a home and destination for the rich and noble.

In 1905 Sorrento Palace was bought by Lord William Waldorf Astor, one of the wealthiest men at that time and became a passion project as he increased the territory and designed a splendid garden at the back of the house where a Dominican monastery once stood. His final addition to the property was the “Pompeiian” villa, which he decorated with Ionic columns and neo-classical frescoes by a Roman artist, Mario Spinetti. After his death, Sorrento Palace underwent a period of obscurity, though even during this time it still attracted notable figures, such as Benedetto Croce, the revered Italian philosopher and politician, who lived there during the Second World War.


In the 1970s, Sorrento Palace was acquired by a wealthy family, Mariano Pane and his wife, who welcomed many celebrated guests including Princess Margaret, Rudolf Nuriev, Gregory Peck, Sofia Loren, Franco Zeffirelli and Gianni Agnelli.

Sorrento Palace has a classic feel. The exquisite interiors are filled with a museum-worthy collection of Greek and Roman antiques that once belonged to Lord Astor himself.  In the lush gardens, one will find antique artefacts lying everywhere – columns, statues, fountains, urns, pottery shards and fragments of sarcophagi, many of which were originally excavated from Pompeii.


Named one of the trendiest Italian wedding venues by Brides Magazine, Sorrento Palace is truly a dream wedding venue. The panoramic views of the sea and Mount Vesuvius create a heavenly setting for romance and celebration. Dinning can be enjoyed al fresco under the stars or inside one of the many salons.
