Grand Hotel Portovenere is located on the most panoramic point of Portovenere is the gateway to both Cinque Terre and the Gulf of Poets, two of the most coveted destinations in Italy.
The Italian Riviera awaits you
In the XVI century the building was home to a monastery and after a careful renovation, the hotel opened its doors with a new designed understated elegance.
47 rooms and suites featuring stunning views over the town and the island each one of them beautifully appointed to showcase the unique and ancient history of the building.
At Palmaria Restaurant dishes are a mix of tradition and modern creativity and the coolest place to be is the hotels outdoor terrace.
My personal tip
Book the hotel’s boat for a day at sea and visit both Cinque Terre and the Gulf of Poets at your own leisure. Do not forget to buy “pesto” in Portovenere, the best ever!
My favourite room
The Suite del Castello with its stunning 800 square feet terrace overlooking the town, the castle and the bay.
