    The historic Hotel Caruso, Orient-Express Hotels’ fourth property in Italy, incorporates the excavated remains of an 11th-century palace, a colonnade that dates to the 17th century, and buildings and artworks from the 1700s. But the property, which opened after a $30 million restoration in 2005, does not lack for modern comforts. Most of the 47 guest rooms and suites feature terraces with stunning views of the Gulf of Salerno, the same vantage afforded by the hotel’s infinity pool, which clings to a cliff nearly 1,000 feet above the Mediterranean. Beyond the boundaries of the hotel, cobblestone streets twist alongside ancient churches in the town of Ravello. Fewer than 20 miles away is the excavated city of Pompeii. Accommodations Of the 48 rooms, 6 are suites, 18 are junior suites and 24 are double rooms. Most rooms have a sea view and terrace, and some suites have private gardens. Facilities A wellness center, heated outdoor infinity swimming pool, fitness center, a theater-style meeting room for up to 100 people. The Belvedere, an extension of the hotel, features a wide, outdoor garden for banquets and celebrations for up to 150 people. Dining Caruso Restaurant, with a menu of traditional Neapolitan and regional Italian cuisine, is among the best spots on the cliff to admire the stunning views of the Mediterranean. Rates From about $955 to $4,100.
