With a history that dates back more than a century, charming Hotel Shelley e Delle Palme is named after English poet Percy Shelley, one of the many creative souls who was captivated by this beautiful pocket in northern Italy. It's easy to see what he and so many others have seen in Lerici – just look at the crystalline bay and cliffside huddle of pastel-colored buildings in this off-the-radar seaside town. As a hotel guest, you'll be perfectly placed to take in these and a slew of other sights with ease.

The 19th-century property makes the most of its prime location, at the eastern end of the Gulf of Poets and less than 700 feet from the beach, with a sea-view sundeck and a sixth-floor breakfast space, offering its own panoramic vistas. Throw in a lovely spa with a Finnish sauna, an emotional shower and a creative treatment menu, and you've got the perfect recipe for relaxation – and inspiration.
