If you appreciate a good view and don’t suffer from vertigo, the family-run Caesar Augustus on Capri might be the place for you.

Harriet, Kate L and Victoria are here to help give you the inside track.

The hotel itself sits on a cliff edge some 1,000ft above sea level, and on a clear day it's easy to see the entire Bay of Naples, including the neighbouring island of Ischia, the mainland town of Sorrento and the summit of Mount Vesuvius. As you can imagine, the hotel tries to bring such a spectacular view into the equation wherever possible, be that from most of the 53 rooms (of which over 40 are suites) or by the beautiful two-tier infinity pool. Also besides the pool is the Terrazza di Lucullo restaurant, specialising in Caprese and Neapolitan favourites, and there is also an elegant bar where guests can enjoy sunset cradling an expertly made bellini.

Why we love it

The lifesize statue of Emperor Augustus Caesar at the hotel is a replica of the original in Rome, and was commissioned by exiled Russian Prince Emmanuel Bulhak, whose home this was.
