Since 1903, The Grand Hotel Miramare has been a gleaming white pearl on the italian coastline. Set between the brilliant blue of its sea and the park's rich greenery, it stands like a beacon of luxury and history. Built by Giacomo Costa, Miramare was one of the first Grand Hotels on the Riviera and rapidly become a must for the international jet setters of the time. Still today, the elegance of the Miramare’s white façade strikes the eye even from a considerable distance. Closer inspection reveals its sophisticated trompe l’oeils and floral decorations in the Leonardesque fresco style, a work that restored the Grand Hotel to its original turn of the century splendor. The area has long been considered an urban paradise, and the nearby Cinque Terre is classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Fresh fish, sun and sea, make the Ligurian Coast the perfect location for one of the world's most perfect hotels.
