Camilla Franks' Guide To Sorrento19 Sep 2023
CAMILLA has partnered with the world’s largest independent luxury hotels collection, the Leading Hotels of the World to reimagine some of Italy’s most iconic hotels in true CAMILLA style: as limited edition, handpainted prints splashed across luxurious silks and satins. The next chapter begins in Sorrento, at the iconic Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria.
Brimming with the opulent grandeur of 18th-century columns, resplendent marble busts, meticulously crafted hand-painted frescoes, and a profusion of seaside florals that grace its every corner, the hotel stands as an awe-inspiring testament to the ages. Its three iconic 19th-century terracotta building are poised like guardians of time, piercing an eternal azure expanse, where the boundless sea of the Amalfi Coast kisses the heavens.
Honour the Italian coast with breezy linen pieces to billow through the hotel. Opt for billowing palazzo pants, a flowing shirt and head wrap to wander Sorrento’s cobbled streets. If you’re in the mood for a dainty dash of dolce vita, tying a knot in your shirt is an easy mid-afternoon outfit zjoosh. In the evening slip into a slip dress or a catsuit for a high glam Sorrento statement. Sunglasses from day into night, naturally.
