Raising the Bar in Italy

Raise a toast to la dolce vita. Discover our sparkling venues across Italy, each combining a spectacular setting with a vivacious atmosphere.

In the bustling Piazzetta in Portofino, pull up a chair at Belmond Hotel Splendido’s new Dom Perignon corner for a glass of sparkling wine and a selection of gourmet appetisers. Relish life to the full, just as Liza Minnelli, Clark Gable and Barbra Streisand have done before you in the Italian Riviera’s chicest harbour. Ask us about private parties, too.

Recline on soft leather among leopard-print cushions at Belmond Villa San Michele’s glamorous Cloister Bar, where ancient tradition blends with modern sophistication, and expansive gardens overlooking Florence create a magical setting for summer evenings. During the warmer months our innovative bartenders put their unique stamp on weekly sparkling events.


Indulge in a picnic in our floral gardens, wandering barefoot through the grass to find your perfect vantage point. Unpack your wicker basket to discover mouthwatering surprises, wine and a soft blanket.


Over at Belmond Castello di Casole, serenity awaits on the beautiful terrace at Bar Visconti. It’s the ideal place to sit and chill as you watch the breathtaking sunset over the Tuscan hills. Sip a zingy cocktail or a healthy mocktail; maybe even sniff out our truffle-scented martini.

Or join the party at the Sparkling Garden, Belmond Hotel Caruso’s fabulous boîte on the Amalfi Coast. Set on the ancient colonnade, with dramatic views of Scala and the Mediterranean Sea, the scene embraces artisan-crafted ceramic tables and twinkling candles suspended from the trees. Order chilled fizz to savour with Carmasciando cheese plates, black truffles and exquisite sushi. Tunes from our dextrous pianist bring the enchantment to life.
