Summer at Il Pellicano

Il Pellicano is a world famous hotel located in Porto Ercole, between Rome and Florence, on the Tuscan coast. Inaugurated on June 2, 1965 by Michael and Patsy Graham, Il Pellicano has become a must visit spot on the Tyrrhenian Sea due to its impressive settings that allow guests to enjoy days of relaxation.

Slim Aarons was one of Il Pellicano's frequent guests, and snapped iconic photographs like the one below. Taken in the Summer of 1973, this photo shows a Magnum Motorboat at Il Pellicano's jetty.
