Hotel Il San Pietro: glamorous seaside retreat in Positano, Italy

The venerable Il San Pietro in Positano has been around for forty years and a recent renovation is making it once again a favorite among visitors to the Amalfi Coast. Its location is unbeatable; it is built into the rocky cliffs over the Mediterranean with vertigo-inducing drops into the sea on either side.
