Luna Convento 

One of Amalfi’s most iconic and historical hotels

An intimate hotel housed in a medieval convent, originally founded by St Francis of Assisi.

This former medieval convent is one of Amalfi’s most famous hotels. Experience a true sense of history during your stay here with a visit to the chapel or marvel at the magnificent central courtyard with its climbing plants, enclosed by arched cloisters and overlooked by a bell tower. The atmosphere is intimate and brimming with character and it’s no surprise that guests return year after year. Follow a series of steps down to the pool and soak up the sun while drinking in the magnificent sea views or wander further down to take a refreshing dip in the sea. A short walk will take you to the centre of Amalfi where boutiques and bars await.

Why we love Luna Convento

  • Just a five-minute walk to the shops, bars and restaurants in the centre of Amalfi.

  • Serving guests since 1818, Luna Convento has played host to distinguished guests including the German composer Wagner and French novelist Emile Zolà.

  • Dine in a coastal tower with spectacular views of the Amalfi coastline.

  • The gardens are as historic as the building it surrounds. Some of the terraces date back to the Middle Ages and are still used today to provide ingredients for the restaurants.
