The Romans, with their unfailing eye for beauty, were among the first to appreciate the spectacular scenery and temperate climate of Surrentum, perched on the cliffs of the Sorrento Peninsula in an area that also lies along the famous coast road known as the “Amalfitana.” One of Italy’s leading Grand Hotels, the EXCELSIOR VITTORIA is located in Sorrento, the place where it is said that the Roman Emperor Augustus had a beautiful villa with magnificent views of Mount Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples.
