Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria

Top choice hotel

in Sorrento

A hotel for over 170 years, the grand old dame of Sorrento oozes belle-époque elegance. Huge potted palms adorn gilded public rooms awash with antique furniture. Rooms vary in size and style, ranging from tasteful simplicity to extravagant, frescoed opulence, but all have views of the hotel’s gardens, dripping with crimson bougainvillea, or over the sea to Vesuvius.

Past guests have included Pavarotti, Wagner, Goethe, Sophia Loren and British royalty.
