As soon as we got there we were very warmly welcomed by Nicola's staff, with beautiful flowers in our room and a bottle of wine from Nicola to celebrate our marriage. The room was lovely, very spacious, clean and... More

Olivium is located in the hills located above La Spezia, with easy access to the UNESCO world heritage site "Cinque Terre". We were traveling by rental car from Rome, and we were looking for a location outside the city with easy parking (Cinque Terre not accessible to autos). The drive to the resort was challenging, but the view was awesome.... More

In the evening, there is the possibility to have an Italian "aperitivo" by ordering some "bruschetta" and cool drinks and taste them in the patio overlooking the countryside.
