Experiences

At the San Pietro

Guided visit of the gardens at the San Pietro

Guided gardens visit

The gardens are one of the most interesting aspects of the San Pietro’s geography, not only for their layered terraces that are typical to the Amalfi Coast, but for their large production of organic produce that is used daily in our restaurants and bars, and the flowers used to decorate the halls and rooms. The Maitre’d will accompany you through the gardens along a scenic path that gradually descends to the sea, while describing the production and harvesting of seasonal vegetables interspersed with colourful anecdotes and curiosities. Please request this complimentary tour at Reception.

With a cellar of over 600 labels, wine is an important part of the San Pietro’s culture. From a theoretical introduction, to combinations, pairing and tasting, our sommeliers will guide you through a private wine tasting in the quiet setting of the Zass Restaurant. Aimed at experiencing the excellence and uniqueness of popular wine territories, our sommeliers offer a choice of 3 regional itineraries (Piedmont, Tuscany and Campania), or a personalized itinerary upon request.

“Most hotels are built in prominent positions as imposing and impressive properties, made to be seen,” says Carlo Cinque. “Il San Pietro was built to be invisible.” Guests pulling into the car park will see the small 17th-century San Pietro chapel and little else. The rest of the hotel lies beneath, constructed against the rock face on 12 levels.

“My favorite part of the job is interacting with guests; seeing the emotion at their arrival and departure, receiving letters from those who become friends over the years and who send cards or call me at Christmas, and who invite me to pass an evening together whenever I travel through their part of the world. For this reason, it is not just a job, but there is an important social aspect to it.” This year Andrea Zana @zana348 steps into the role of General Manager for the San Pietro.

Bond of brothers: Carlo and Vito Cinque represent the third generation of San Pietro hoteliers. Both grew up around the hotel as children, helping their uncle and mother and mingling with the guests as teenagers. It is safe to say, the hospitality that began with Carlino, Salvatore and Virginia, remains unchanged today under the management of the two brothers.

The room that was once the winter apartment of SP founder, Carlino, commemorates the sirens who have always been associated with Positano and the Li Galli islands just off its coast. In Homer’s Odyssey, the islands were inhabited by beautiful sirens who would sing to the sailors and lure them off their ships. Before sailing between these islands, the crew put wax in their ears so they would not hear the sirens’ song. Ulysses, wanting to hear the music had his men tie him to the mast so he would not be tempted to jump ship. Something of the sirens’ lure lingers in the Costiera air today. Carlino knew that visitors coming to our shores would find it hard to leave so he built the San Pietro, a home they could keep coming back to.
