Sorrento - the Amalfi Coast and the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria

Sorrento is easy to reach by sea with the port of Marina Piccola providing a spectacular arrival guaranteed to take your breath away. With a central station in the town, it is also easy to reach by train and by car along the SS 145 motorway.
Sorrento is full of sights and sounds to inspire the imagination and to enchant the senses. With long sunny days and picturesque gardens full of colourful citrus fruits, Sorrento is a mix of dramatic panoramas that are gloriously splendid and enchanting. At night, under the light of the silver moon, fishermen and their lamps can be seen searching for  their catch in the dark sea – ready to be savoured with other fresh ingredients at the table the following day.
  Sorrento is more than just a place – it is the ultimate location to experience beauty and the Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is the town’s focal point for the very best in art, culture and gastronomy.
Sorrento is easy to fall in love with and many have memories of their stay here that last forever. The Sorrento Peninsular clings to a precipice overlooking the water – giving the sensation that you are on the edge of the world looking in. While the Amalfi Coast, easily reached from Sorrento, is sweet, green and descends all the way to the sea.
Come and make unforgettable memories in Sorrento and experience enchantment with us at the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria.


Situated in a beautiful location on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Gulf of Naples, right in the heart of Sorrento and surrounded by a five-acre park, the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is the most prestigious jewel of the Neapolitan Riviera. The hotel is just 25 minutes from Capri and 30 minutes from Positano, Amalfi Coast, Pompei and has a view of Mount Vesuvius.

Breathe in the fresh air that drifts across rolling hills from clusters of orange and lemon groves and explore the old town's winding historic maze of narrow, cobbled alleyways. Sorrento is full of variety throughout the year - romantic, lively and absolutely captivating.


The Amalfi Coast is one of the most spectacular stretches of coastline in the world: craggy, winding and riddled with caves, dotted with secret beaches, full of panoramic views and surrounded by pastel-coloured fishing villages.

. The breathtaking views and mix of grand villas, terraced vineyards and cliffside lemon groves hidden throughout the countryside are a sight to behold. Our magical location will enchant and enthral you.
