I cannot begin to thank Michele enough for his warm, genuine hospitality. Palazzo Verone is truly a wonderful place!
Unfortunately I became VERY ill on my trip from Rome to Amalfi. By the time I reached Palazzo Verone I was running a very high fever and very sick. Michele went above and beyond to make me as comfortable as possible. Upon arrival he immediately made me lemonade from his special Amalfi lemons, handed me Vicks Vapor Rub, and offered to run to the pharmacy to get me anything I needed.
Over the course of the next few days Michele continued to look after me and even called his doctor for a house call to come and see me. He really went out of his way to make sure I was ok. Also, while I was sick in bed he played tour guide to my boyfriend showing him all the lovely things Ravello and Pontone have to offer. This made me genuinely happy as my boyfriend otherwise would have been sitting, twiddling his thumbs waiting for me to get better. He showed my boyfriend a wonderful time, taking him to a local party and to the Ravello music festival. My boyfriend is still singing Michele's "Pontone song".
Overall we spent 3 weeks in Italy. Our time at Palazzo Verone was an absolute highlight (even being sick). I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel. We plan on going back very soon to visit Michele.

History The fame of Verone and the miraculous story "Palazzo Verone" is an historical mansion of medieval origin and still preserve evidence of its glorious past, several paintings of the eighteenth century (mentioned in TCI) can be seen on walls and celings. The building in ancient times was owned by Mr. Verone, influential and well known family of Pontone's village. The Verones were in struggling however with another noble family of the place, the D'Afflittos, owners of the ancient basilica of S.Eustace Petite that still can be seen nowadays. An old legend came up to us telling that in1618, Mr.Giovanni Domenico Verone and his wife were rescue somehow from death. This miracle is depicted in the frescoes ovals that still are preserved (they show some thiefs chained up and others souls in Purgatory holding bones in their hands) and it seems that the history is that the family have been saved from the assault of some thiefs thanks to the intercession, prayer request, of the souls in Purgatory. ... more less
