Located on a green hillside overlooking Portofino’s harbour, the Hotel Splendido is amongst Italy’s most luxurious retreats. A stay here will grant tourists the opportunity to embrace the splendour of the Ligurian Riviera: relaxing days spent soaking up the sun by the crystal clear pool, enjoying legendary lunchtime cuisine at the hotel’s Pool Restaurant and taking in the breath-taking views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Guests at the hotel can enjoy their complimentary full American breakfasts before exploring the abundance of charming cultural sites to be found in the area, including Castello Brown and the Church of St. George. A shuttle bus is available from the hotel at various times throughout the day, allowing guests to explore the village’s main sites with ease. For those who do not wish to get around using public transport, free parking is available outside of the hotel, with a private garage being available for use at an additional charge.
From the hotel, tourists can immerse themselves in the traditional Ligurian atmosphere of Portofino by wandering down the winding roads and past the colourful houses to immerse themselves in the charm of the busy harbour, which is surrounded by stunning natural beauty. Portofino’s Piazzetta is adorned with cafés and restaurants, while its main street, Via Roma, is lined with high-end boutiques, jewellers’ stores and artists’ workshops, reflecting the fact that the village has been frequented by some of Hollywood’s most famous, including Elizabeth Taylor and Humphrey Bogart.
