Amalfi: Hotel Albergo Cappuccin

Amalfi - Albergo Cappuccin

Currently lying empty and drifting into dereliction, the hotel still hangs over the harbour with stately elegance. The green exterior lift to take guests from the garage up to the hotel is evidence of this once very grand establishment. The longer it lays empty, the costs of restoration will escalate exponentially which is a great shame.
