Through its long history as a private mansion and as a hotel the Tramontano has sheltered many great people of the literary world.

It is legendary that Milton visited this shrine during his travels; and it was graced by Goethe, Byron, Scott, Shelley, Musset, Lamartine, Keats, Leopardi and Longfellow. James Fenimore Cooper lived here while writing the "Water Witch" and Harriet Beecher Stowe here found her inspiration to write "Agnes of Sorrento". Henrik Ibsen lived at the Tramontano for six months and wrote his immortal "Ghost" during that time. "Turna a Surriento" - "Come back to Sorrento", by G. B. De Curtis was composed on the terrace of the Hotel.

This house has been patronized by royalty, including Queen Wilhelmina of Holland, Empress Maria Alexandrowna of Russia and Edward VII as Prince of Wales in 1862 and later as King of Great Britain. The west wing of this hosterly is the historical birthplace of the celebrated Italian poet Torquato Tassso Author of "Jerusalem Delivered" and "Aminta" March 11th 1544.

The garden, designed by English gardeners at the end of the 19th century, conserves rare Mediterranean and sub-tropical trees. Surrounded by local orange and lemon plants and from Camelias of all ages.

The lift that goes through 60 metres of tufo, connects all the floors of the hotel with the under laying beach.
