Location & Map
Hotel Address:Location Summary
- Excelsior Palace Hotel Rapallo
- Via San Michele Di Pagana 8
Here is the “Liguria di Levante”, eastern Liguria, bashful, sunny, caressed by a sea that has carved cosy inlets and craggy buttresses into the jagged coastline.It’s hard to imagine how the charm of these places couldn’t have worked its spell on the spirit and imagination of poets and thinkers. From those who were born here – like Eugenio Montale, adoptive son of the Cinque Terre – to those who made it their second home. A romantic trail that is replete with literary references, especially in the “Gulf of Poets”, between Portovenere and Lerici.Cinque Terre: A strip of rugged coast not far from La Spezia, studded with minute, pastel-painted villages. Coming from Genoa, the doorway to this ancient little world is Monterosso, which possesses the only sand beach in the area and a handsome crucifix by Van Dyck in the Church of San Francesco. Then come Vernazza, with its laughing harbour; lofty Corniglia, once fortified; Manarola, which seems to slip gently into the sea; and Riomaggiore, which at sunset, once the throngs have left, regains its jealously guarded silences and mysteries.Portofino: The famous “Piazzetta”, delimited by the little houses, slopes down and ends in the water of the harbour. To this day, sailors still draw boats out of the water upon it as if upon the edge of a beach. All around and under the pointed-arched porticos, along the quay and the Pier, the boutiques, the shops, the American bars, and the restaurants act as a frame.
Highlights & Reviews
Banquets & Meetings
Three very large, modular rooms make up the Duke of Windsor Congress Centre, for meetings and conventions for up to 450 people. The largest portion of the Windsor hall is constituted by theSala Simpson, separated from the other two, the Sala Duse and the Sala Soraya. The latter features direct access to the terrace overlooking Portofino and the sea for a well-deserved break from conference proceedings.
The Business Corner of the Excelsior Palace Hotel offers the use of a personal computer, fax, printer, photocopier, Internet connection – the Business Corner has it all.
Fine Dining on Site
The Lord Byron restaurant, open year round, is a blend of refinement, tradition and creative culinary skill. The Eden Roc, which in April 2007 was ranked fourth in the classification of Italy’s best hotel restaurants by Conde’ Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Award, is the hotel’s summer restaurant and offers light, refined dishes.
Two panoramic swimming pools, one equipped with whirlpool loungers.
Relaxation, regeneration, well-being: the key words of the Beauty & Wellness Club.
Surrounded by waves, girded in an embrace that smells of wind and sea, the hours spent on the deck-chairs and recliners of the Excelsior Palace Hotel Beach Club flit idly by, far removed from any stress.
The Exclusive room category features a balcony and sea view either on the gulf of Portofino or on Rapallo bay. Some are connected with Superior room category.
