Via Giuseppe Garibaldi 5, Portovenere, Liguria, 19025, Italy

This 13th-century Franciscan convent–turned–elegant hotel incorporates modern enhancements while retaining the structure's impressive rose facade, arches, and frescoes. Guest rooms, done in earth tones and blues, are stylishly modern and have great views of the the sea and the town's historic center. The hotel also has a fine restaurant that offers a robust breakfast (with robust views) and candlelit dinners on the terrace.
