This five-star masterful hotel boasts with a unique charm and elegant style throughout. If you’re looking forward to visiting the local attractions, the Herculaneum, Naples and Pompeii, Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is the most perfect place to start your journey from. Guests can also enjoy an absolutely idyllic boat trip to Capri or even do snorkeling and sailing.

They are also able to wander through the Natural Marine Reserve of Punta Campanella, found adjacently to the hotel. There’s also plenty of stuff to do for the ones seeking the thrill, like going through the Path of the Gods – a gorgeous historical site with extremely beautiful panoramas. There are also two local attractions which are a bit lesser known than the others – the Skipjack and Amberjacks – they can be nicely visited during the winter and autumn.

Grand Hotel Excelsior has served as get-away spot for fabled individuals, politicians, monarchs and even artists, like Enrico Caruso, Jack Lemmon, Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe, Richard Wagner and many more. Furthermore, the year 2013 comes with a nice package, courtesy of the hotel, the Discover Pompeii Package – it provides guests with the opportunity to thoroughly explore Pompeii.

The package was launched to celebrate The British Museum’s exhibition on The Life and Death of Pompeii & Herculaneum, which will reportedly take place between the 28th of March and the 29th of September. In fact, this exhibition is the first major one on Pompeii, in London, during the last 40 years, therefore the Discover Pompeii Package will definitely come really nice. The package involves tour guidance into the life of the renowned city.
