We are here in Italy on a small group tour.  Our first stop is Sorrento.   We decided to splurge and treat our travelers to a 5-star luxe hotel in Sorrento.   Everyone has a junior suite on the stunning cliffs of Sorrento overlooking the Bay of Naples.  We are so happy to offer this fantastic hotel at a reasonable rate.

What impresses us about the hotel is not so much the large rooms, the outstanding breakfast, and the absolutely stunning view, but the cordial and friendly staff.  If you know The Traveling Professor tours, we usually stay at 3 or 4 star family owned hotels.  At the Vittoria, we do feel like we are staying at a small family-owned hotel.   I've posted many photos on my Facebook account (look for "The Traveling Professor") for my gorgeous photos.

They also have a reasonably-priced Michelin-starred restaurant which EVERY traveler took advantage of.   I have never been to a more romantic and scenic restaurant in my life:
