DINING & FACILITIES
Facilities & AmenitiesThe landscape surrounding Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is ideal as either a backdrop to resort-style relaxation or a territory for sightseeing. The property incorporates several terraces with magnificent views of the Bay of Naples and the island of Ischia. Five acres of private gardens provide ample space for strolling, as well as much of the fruit used in the hotel's meals and spa treatments. Guests can tour lovely coastal villages by sea with one of the hotel's boats for daily hire. Snorkeling excursions can be organised on request. Kids can also enjoy some space to run around at the children's playground, nestled in a grassy orchard with plenty of shade. Sorrento's main square is a short, scenic walk from the property. In town, guests can visit acclaimed restaurants excelling in regional cuisine or boutiques selling local crafts. Historical sites in Sorrento include the Cloister of St. Francis, built in the 14th century and still home to a group of Franciscan friars. A private elevator transports guests from the Vittoria Terrace to a harbor at the foot of the cliff on which the property is situated. From there, summer travelers can take a hydrofoil to the islands of Capri, Ischia, Positano, or Naples. Alternatively, nature lovers can follow one of the celebrated walking trails that vein the Amalfi coastline.

Rooms & Dining
Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria has 97 rooms and suites distributed among three wings. Most accommodations have a private balcony or terrace with views of either the Bay of Naples or the hotel gardens. Averaging 323 square feet (30 square meters) in size, rooms feature antiques, trompe l'oeil wall designs, and authentic 19th-century frescoes dating from the hotel's earliest days.
The hotel also offers suites named either for luminaries who once stayed at the hotel or after themed décor (e.g. the painted depictions of Roman culture in the duplex Pompeii Suite). The 77-square-meter (829 square feet) Suite Margaret (as in Britain's Princess Margaret) treats guests like royalty with a cast-iron belle époque tub in its elegant cream-toned bathroom, among other luxuries. All rooms have free Internet connection.
Guests can start the day sumptuously with breakfast in the elegant Vittoria dining room, decorated in a classical 19th-century style, complete with frescoed ceiling. During cooler months, Neapolitan-style lunches and dinners are served here. Warmer months bring al fresco candlelight fine dining on the unique and panoramic Bosquet Terrace, where views of Mount Vesuvius add to the romantic ambiance. A weekly buffet with live piano music is held on the Vittoria Terrace in summer. Tasting, vegetarian, and children's menus are available.
The Orangerie poolside restaurant and snack bar serves lunch specialties such as homemade pizza and pasta daily from May to October, and jazz evenings are organised by the pool.
