The 5-star hotel is nestled between the famous Cinque Terre and the inspirational Gulf of Poets in eastern Liguria. Once upon a time, this historic 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 (9 km away) and the Bay of La Spezia, which inspired poets such as Lord Byron and Mary and Percy Shelley. Palmaria Restaurant, with its scenic terrace overlooking the sea, pays homage not only to the flavors of the Italian Riviera but also to many of Italy’s most beloved dishes.

Definitely the nicest hotel with the nicest location in Porto Venere. Views are amazing, the outside area is amazing and the breakfast is good. The only crit I have is that the service doesn't seem to come naturally, perhaps a bit forced, perhaps they try to hard, or perhaps it
