We just stayed and stayed at the Palazzo Torre Barbara in Seiano, Vico Equense. We booked the room for one night, but couldn’t leave. The place is perfetto! I think we had the best room in the palazzo. It’s room 402. Write that down. Whoever designed this remodeled 19th century palazzo knew what they were doing. The rooms are 21st century all the way, while retaining the simple Italian elegance that at least I wish I lived with every single day.
And they have Internet – not the unreliable wireless that we found elsewhere and costs you 15 Euro a day, but in-house DSL that is fast and works and is included in the price.
If you want to sit on a terrazzo overlooking the Bay of Naples and Vesuvio at sunset with a glass of Prosecco in hand while emailing your adventures home, this is the place for you.
Later, after traveling for almost two weeks in beautiful paese throughout the Mezzogiorno, we needed a fix of modern comforts. So we called and told them we were coming back. They welcomed us with baci e abbracci.
