Portovenere Holidays

Enjoy sea food trattorias on the colourful harbour front or climb through the narrow cobbles streets and historic stairs into the medieval centre. Enter this walled city through the fortified gate Porto del Borgo, its labyrinth of streets, staircases and tiny passageways to explore the history which dates back to the middle of the 1st century BC.

Days can be enjoyed exploring the area or taking a boat trip out to the archipelago of islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto, enjoying the sea breezes and crystal waters.
