Albergo Cappello

Albergo Cappello can trace the historical roots of its name, “the hat hotel”, to 1800’s Ravenna where society viewed hats as status symbols and rooms were reserved for only the socially elite. Situated in one of Ravenna’s most revered Renaissance structures, the hotel is said to have been the birthplace of Francesca da Polenta, the Divine Comedy’s ill-fated mistress. Local folklore aside, the luxurious rooms and common areas of Albergo Cappello are decorated with original frescoes and elegant furnishings. Special touches like afternoon tea in the dining room and fresh seasonal fruit delivered to your door each afternoon, recall the splendor of a bygone era but will help to create new memories of Ravenna that you will carry with you forever.
