Guests should not miss a visit to ancient Pompeii

Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria sits on a perch high above the Mediterranean, with views that extend from the island of Procida across the Gulf to Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Set in five acres of olive, lemon and orange groves, the hotel was built on the ancient foundations of a villa designed for Emperor Augustus. For those looking to add a bit of culture to their Sorrento adventure, this icon is perfectly positioned to explore the ruined city of Pompeii, which was buried under volcanic ash following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79CE.
