La Spezia: The Cinque Terre, Porto Venere, Lerici

If you are romantics as Byron and Shelley used to be, Lerici is the place you were looking for. Located opposite Porto Venere in the magical Golfo dei Poeti, Lerici and its antique castel always transmit overwhelming emotions to the visitors passing by the fishing pier.

The sunsets in the Gulf are among of the World’s most beautiful ones and the occasionally storms also have their sublime charm. On a nice, sunny day it is very pleasant to reach the famous Cinque Terre by boat.

The Cinque Terre (Five Lands) comprises five picturesque villages, the coastline and hillsides, all part of the Cinque Terre National Park: Vernazza, Manarola, Riomaggiore, Monterosso and Corniglia. Nature lovers but not only should not miss to take a walk in one of the many scenic trails that are located in the Cinque Terre.
