This 5-star hotel on the Italian Riviera is nestled between the famous Cinque Terre and the inspirational Gulf of Poets in Eastern Liguria. Once upon a time, the building hosted the Convent of Saint Francis. Following careful renovation works, today it features a charming hotel with sea-view rooms, a Mediterranean restaurant and luxury services.
Grand Hotel Portovenere overlooks the marina and the historic center of Porto Venere. The seafront hotel is just steps away from the boats that take you to the Cinque Terre and the Bay of La Spezia, which inspired poets such as Lord Byron and Mary and Percy Shelley.

The surrounding nature provides a scenery that astonishes travellers from all over the world.
