About Don Alfonso 1890
Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi (Saint Agatha on the Two Gulfs), between Sorrento and Positano, is the small capital of the Sorrentine Peninsula, and acts as a divide between the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno. It is in this town that Don Alfonso’ owners Livia and Alfonso Iaccarino welcome travelers and gourmet connoisseurs into the hotel and restaurant, in order to share the haute cuisine, culture, land, sea, and delicious produce of one of the most beautiful places in Italy. Don Alfonso 1890 is a family run business and since 1973 Livia, Alfonso and their two sons have taken great pride in serving simple dishes all of which originate from the land and sea of the Due Golfi with a passion that only people in love with their land can infuse into their food.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
