Discover Portofino

Salita Baratta 16, 16034 Portofino, Genoa, Italy

Portofino, Italy radiates understated Italian sophistication. This traditional Ligurian fishing village retains an unspoiled, old-world charm. Pretty pink and yellow houses border narrow, winding roads. Sailboats and private yachts bob around the busy harbour. Surrounding the bay are scenes of staggering natural beauty.

Rising high above it all is our iconic resort, Belmond Hotel Splendido. Tucked among lush tropical gardens, the hotel enjoys spectacular views across the shimmering Ligurian Sea–even more enchanting by moonlight. From up here in the hills, you’ll be perfectly placed to savour the spirit of Portofino.
