History Grand Hotel Miramare

Grand Hotel Miramare

The Grand Hotel Miramare overlooks the Gulf of Tigullio at Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy. In 1903 Mr Giacomo Costa had decided to transform his private villa into a hotel, giving the management to the Kuoni-Stoppani family, who were the founders of one of the oldest European (Swiss) travel agencies. This is how the Miramare soon became one of the first Grand Hotels on the Portofino coast.
The hotel provides the public with little information about its history.
