In Paradiso, the third and final part of The Divine Comedy, we read about Dante’sjourney through the nine spheres of Heaven to finally reach the Empyrean, the abode of God. Just like the great poet, find your way to Il Paradiso di Dante, a lovely B&B located quietly close to the historic center. Although the poem was written in the 14th century, the four rooms dedicated to Mercury, Sun, Venus and Moon are furnished in modern style with soundproof walls and all the modern comforts to guarantee a pleasant stay.
Beside the Basilica Santa Maria della Sanità, you will find an artful B&B set in a monastery. Casa del Monacone is not just another hotel; it is a whole project which gives you the unique possibility to be a guest of the Ancient Convent in the middle of the historic colorful Rione Sanità. Originally built as a home to the monks, it was later converted with the help of a famous Neapolitan designer Riccardo Dalisi into six cozy and comfortable rooms, a dining room, a kitchen and a terrace.
