Quisisana. The very name conjures up images of all that is elegant and luxurious about the Capri, island of indulgence and La Dolce Vita. The island which has been attracting and captivating dreamers who arrive on its dramatic shores for more than 150 years.
It's impossible to visit the Island of Capri without walking by the Quisisana at least once. Just steps from the famed Piazzetta, the Grand Hotel dominated with its timeless and classice beauty. It was over 150 years ago when the English physician George Clark decided to transform his wife's holiday villa first into a sanatorium for consumption, and then into a luxury hotel which has become a landmark for both locals and visitors over the past century.
