Enjoy the beauty of the Ligurian Sea and the Port at Grand Hotel Portovenere

If you leave the port of the old city of Genoa, and sail southeast along the Ligurian coast, down past the town of Levanto, and then even further, past the woodlands and the rocky capes of the A 16th century Franciscan monastery that has been transformed into an elegant boutique hotel, the Grand Hotel Portovenere occupies an enviable position on the Italian Riviera. Located on the harbour front in the pretty village of Portovenere, it is ideally positioned for exploring picturesque Cinque Terre and the stunning Gulf of Poets.

As well as visiting nearby seaside villages by ferry or train, the hotel arranges exclusive experiences for guests, including private boat trips to the oyster farms of La Spezia, tours of the vineyards of Riomaggiore, hiking in the natural park and cooking classes with the executive chef.

Following a full day of sea and land based adventures, guests can relax on the Venus Bar’s sea view terrace with a cocktail in hand and dine on fresh seafood in the candlelit Palmaria restaurant, before retiring to sophisticated accommodations, where original architectural details are blended with contemporary style and exceptional views are guaranteed.
