Hotel Overview

Sense of place

The Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is in the heart of Sorrento, with panoramic views over the Bay of Naples.

Rooms at Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria

The beautiful rooms and suites all feature original period furniture and most have stunning sea views. For something extra special, you could consider the Caruso Suite, which has a 25 square-metre terrace and hosted the famous tenor in 1921 - today it preserves his original piano as well as other objects. The elegant style of the suite is inspired by the song 'Caruso', which Lucio Dalla wrote in 1986 when he was a guest at the hotel.

Food & Drink

When it comes to dining, you are certainly spoilt for choice here. Head to Terrazza Bosquet on the seafront for gourmet Michelin-starred cuisine, or tuck into irresistible Mediterranean dishes at L'Orangerie, by the pool. Terrazza Vittoria, meanwhile, has exceptional views over the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, which you can take in while enjoying a memorable meal of international favourites. In the evening, have a cocktail at the bar as the sun sets over the bay, accompanied by live music.


Indulge in a treatment at the Boutique Spa La Serra, in a serene garden setting. For those who'd like to keep fit, the state-of-the-art gym with dedicated personal trainers will appeal. Otherwise, you can relax beside the stunning white marble swimming pool and Jacuzzi, all encircled by five acres of lush Mediterranean gardens, perfect for pleasant walks in the shade through citrus and olive groves.
