The Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria occupies a magnificent cliff top location in Sorrento, on a superbly panoramic site overlooking the Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, where it is said that the Roman Emperor Augustus once had a beautiful villa. The Hotel, owned and managed by members of the Fiorentino family since it's inauguration in 1834, is of Italy's finest Grand Hotels, distributed in three different buildings built between 1834 and 1880 in fin-de-siècle style.

The sumptuous interiors still contain a great number of the original pieces of antique furniture first used to decorate the hotel, including beautiful pieces of the inlaid wooden furniture for which the cabinet makers of Sorrento are still famous today. The great majority of guestrooms lead out on to a balcony or terrace where to enjoy views of the Gulf of Naples or the sweet scented orange grove which surrounds the hotel. The magnificently luxurious suites of the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria, recall the fascinating story of the many illustrious personages to have stayed within their walls, and offer the maximum in comfort.

The "Vittoria" Restaurant occupies, arguably, the hotel's most beautiful rooms, characterised by magnificent frescoed ceilings and exquisite deco furnishings. Here guests are presented with superlative Mediterranean cuisine and a selection of the finest regional and international wines. Inspirational Italian cuisine, prepared using the best of the Campania region's traditional and highly prized gastronomic produce, is served at the Terrazza "Bousquet"; on a terrace overlooking the Gulf of Naples and with views across the waters towards the islands of Ischia and Procida. In the summer months, excellent Neapolitan pizza, cooked in a traditional wood burning oven, can be enjoyed at the Orangerie pool restaurant.

Within the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria's five acres of private garden, strewn with citrus trees, there is a large swimming pool where to soak in the Mediterranean sun. Nestling among the olive and orange trees, occupying what was once an elegant greenhouse, the holistic centre "Boutique Spa La Serra" offers a number of rituals and wellness treatments performed in individual suites, each with its own Jacuzzi pool.

From the main terrace of the hotel, a lift descends directly to the pier and the harbour below, where to hire a motor boat for an excursion along the Sorrentine peninsula, or take a trip to the islands of Capri or Ischia on one of the many jet boat and hydrofoil services, which operate daily. For meetings and conferences, the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria offers six elegant and well equipped meeting rooms, with a seating capacity for 30 to 250 guests.
