The Italian Riviera: ah, the beautiful people, the yachts, the spectacular seascapes, Portofino, the amazing world-renown CINQUE TERRE… a beautiful region, a very expensive region, a very crowded and very warm region in the peak-season summertime. Why not go in early Spring when the weather is perfect and the crowds are non-existent?  Good question! And we have the perfect answer: We ARE doing exactly that!

Sestri Levanti is the stunning village where our Hotel Miramare is. From here, everything in and around the Italian Riviera is within easy strking distance.

Sestri Levanti is the stunning village where our Hotel Miramare is perfectly  situated. From here, everything in and around the Italian Riviera is close by.

Our partner and friend, the V.P. of Ski.com, John Frasca, discovered a 4-star resort, Hotel Miramare, in the seaside village of Sestri Levante  a couple of years ago on one of his Italy scouting trips. He fell in love with the hotel and its perfect location right in the middle of the Italian Riviera coast. We are going to check it out!

Portofino is the hub of the Riviera. It is full of people and yachts in the summer, but in spring it is uncrowded and relaxed. It is also less than 40 minutes from your hotel.

Sestri Levanti is right in the middle of all the highlight sites. You will be within a 15 minute train ride to the Cinque Terre, 20 minutes to Portofino and 40 minutes to Genoa. Once you arrive at the hotel, you will be free to choose where you want to go, when to go, and for how long. There are no set tours, so you will have every day to plan whatever you like… freedom in Paradisio!

-The #1 attraction is Cinque Terre, a series of 5 villages that cling to seaside cliffs in a spectacular fashion. The Cinque Terre is considered to be some of Italians most striking and beautiful landscape. The towns are old and quaint. Filled with amazing restaurants (some carved into the cliffs right over the sea) and unique shops, each village is a gem. The mountains, covered by terraced vinyards, olive groves, and lemon trees, meet  up with  the sea. The five villages that make up the Cinque Terre are car-free. You can take a train that

The Cinque Terre is an amazing panorama of sea, vineyards, and villages. You can do a wonderful unique hike of 8 miles that passes through all of the towns. The scenery here is ridiculous!

quickly connects all the villages, so it is very easy to visit them all. Or you can do an AMAZING hike that connects all five. In total, it is a 8 mile walk that can be done in a day. The views along the way are breathtaking. Bring your camera!  You can also take picturesque boat rides between villages to get sea level views of the towns. A day or two can easily be  spent a exploring the Cinque Terre. And our hotel is a short walk to the train station where you can catch the 15 minute ride to the first village of the Cinque Terre. There are special passes you can purchase that allow you unlimited train rides for a couple of days, perfect for casual exploring at your own pace.

Cinque Terre villages are colorful, and full of colorful friendly folks. These three locals were captured on Skiman's camera on his visit to the Cinque Terre 9 years ago. It is one of his all-time favorite pics!

  Skiman visited the Cinque Terre about 8 years ago and had a marvelous time. Ever since that visit, he has been wondering how we could offer a post-ski trip there. Now we have found the perfect hotel to offer this venue for a good price… Excited!

Michelin restaurant, anyone?  Our Hotel Miramare has just that on-site, and part of your package includes a great welcome dinner there!

-Our hotel is off-the-charts luxurious. Located literally right on the Ligurian seashore, the Hotel Miramare is unsurpassable. It is a luxury seaside resort replete with sea side lounges, a MICHELIN 4 star restaurant,  gorgeous rooms and common areas. It is located on a quiet section of the coast in the small village of Sestri Levante. Just hanging out at the hotel for a few days and doing nothing would be worth the visit. BONUS: On our first night, we will have a party with a free welcome drink and some appetizers before our included sumptuous dinner at the seaside Michelin restaurant.

 

Portofino is famous as a destination in the summer for the jet setters. It is packed with yachts and lots of people in the summer who come to people watch, shop, and soak up the beautiful setting of the town. It is a very short 20  minute taxi ride from our hotel and can easily be visited in a day.

Skiman loved this region and its beauty 8 years ago and is excited to come back with some friends. The Italian Riviera is dazzling.

Chiavari is another gorgeous seaside village that is known for its beautiful setting and amazing shopping opportunities. It has a charming old village center and can be visited on the way to/ from Portofino.

Genoa, Christopher Columbus’ home town, is only 40 minutes away. It has an historical and beautiful town center as well as a very cool harbor in which resides one of the Spanish Galleons used in the Pirates of the Carribean movies.  As with everything else, it is within striking distance of your hotel for an easy visit. 

Put yourself on this walkway hanging from the cliffs of the Cinque Terre. This place really is as beautiful as you have heard it is. Come see for yourself this March.
