Spend a Day at Sea with Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria

December 15, 2008 By:K. Clare Johnson

Set sail with Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria. Guests can experience the Sorrento Peninsula by powerboat Tornado 38, steered by the skilled Skipper Maurizio. He will take you to Positano and the Amalfi coast or to the jewel island of Capri. He'll even let you swim in the gorgeous Mediterranean sea. A minimum of four guests and a maximum of 8 can take advantage of the Monday, Wednesday, or Friday excursion. Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria

The cruise will take you along the coast of the Penisula Sorrentina up to Massalubrense and then across the sea to Capri. On the more civilized northern side, visit the world famous Blue Grotto. The wilder south coast has steep rocks plunging into the deep blue cobalt sea and the typical Faraglioni. Anchor in a quiet creek for a nice swim at sea or lazily lie in the sun. Alternatively you will have time to go ashore and to walk in the streets of Capri lined with famous fashion shops or to sit at one of the fashionable cafes in the praised Piazzetta.

Or, cruise to Positano via the beautiful coast line of the Amalfi Coast on the southern side of the Penisula Sorrentina. Positano, built like a crib along the side of the Amalfi coast, will welcome you with its characteristic narrow streets where thousands of colourful clothes locally made are hanging out of the shops like in an Arabian souk. Either way, traveling by boat was never so much fun.
