Fall in love with this port
The town of Porto Venere, a village of timeless charm, emerges out of the southern end of the peninsula, forming the western shore of the Gulf of La Spezia, also known as the Gulf of Poets. A special place where you can breathe romance in every nook and cranny, where, on one of the most panoramic coastal locations, we find the Grand Hotel Portovenere. The hotel, which overlooks the harbor and the ancient village, faces an incredible view that becomes the perfect setting for the most important moments of your big day. A historic building that was born as a Convent of San Francesco in the 17th century, and has recently been completely renovated to become a unique hotel for its location and the services offered.
A reception with a view
This fantastic hotel is ideal for small receptions but equally used for reservations exclusively for the big event. Here you will have the opportunity to set up your banquet in the reception room of the Palmaria Restaurant which, thanks to the large windows surrounding it, offers a unique view. The restaurant stands out for its decor made by master craftsmen, which recreate the style of a contemporary sailing ship overlooking the sea, Palmaria Island and the characteristic colorful houses of Porto Venere. The beautiful terrace that opens onto the sea, illuminated for the occasion, will become the perfect stage for the most beautiful show of your life.
