We like

It may not get as much attention as the Amalfi Coast or even its French counterpart, but the Italian Riviera – a picturesque stretch of rocky Mediterranean shoreline along northern Italy's Ligurian coast – provides an equally dreamy setting for a chic European escape. The region's scenic villages and postcard-worthy beach towns have long lured A-listers, and you can make like one of them yourself with a stay at Europa Hotel Design Spa 1877.

The hotel makes an ideal base to take a ferry to romantic Portofino, famed for its picture-perfect harbour; Fruttuoso, with its submerged Christ of the Abyss statue offshore; and hiking through the five coastal towns that make up Cinque Terre. Recco, the birthplace of cheesy foccacia bread, is about a 15-minute drive away. There’s golf and tennis close by on the outskirts of town, and you can rent a bicycle from the hotel and set off to explore the pretty Italian Riviera the scenic way.
