BELMOND HOTEL SPLENDIDO, Portofino

From stars above a moonlit ocean to swaying palms in the gardens, live la dolce vita in Portofino

Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor returned time and again to Belmond Hotel Splendido—and it’s easy to see why. A beautifully restored former 16th-century monastery, it is the epitome of Italian glamour. Just a stroll away, Belmond Splendido Mare offers serene harbour views and a celebrated waterfront restaurant.
