The Hotel Caesar Augustus was named after the first famous visitor on the Capri island, namely the roman emperor Augustus, and used to be a private villa, "Villa Bitter", until the end of the 19th century. It used to belong to a very rich German landlord. During the first years of the 20th century Villa Bitter was turned into a noble house by a Russian prince and, after the end of the second world war, it was converted into a hotel by the Signorini family . They have been running the hotel for three generations now. The hotel has been fully renovated by Paolo Signorini, its current owner, who succeeded in the attempt to leave unchanged the architectural features which date back to the Roman period.
