You can’t go to Boise and not drive the two hours to spend a weekend or two in this gem of a town. I’ll skip the part of romanticizing you about the destination and just skip to the details of this hotel. (Read about the destination here)
Visiting the Napa Valley means a few things need to be in order before embarking on a cultural, culinary, and scenic journey. From the beginning of Napa Valley all the way to the end of the valley towards Saint Helena, there are many choices when it comes to hotels and accommodations. This past month I had the pleasure of staying at the Meritage Resort & Spa which is situated right at the heart of Napa. Only about 10 minutes from the booming downtown, it is in the perfect location for being emerged into all types of adventure in the valley.

The Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is one of the best hotels in Sorrento for those who are looking to not be right on the main path, experience old world Italian charm, and have a luxurious stay that rivals some of the best in the world.

Thank you to Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria for such a wonderful experience in Sorrento, Italy.
