We first visited Sorrento in 2000 and stayed at the Excelsior Vittoria on several occasions, but it has been 6 years since our last visit. 10 years ago we also wrote a series of articles on a number of luxury hotels, including the Excelsior, and a 10th anniversary therefore seemed an appropriate reason to visit again and update the original feature. So we have booked a few nights during July when we will be visiting friends and business partners.
Here's our update
'A Modern Classic' was one of a series of articles written by Richard Edwards in 2008/9 under the heading First Impressions. They take a personal look at landmark hotels on the Amalfi Coast and the original articles can be viewed below.
