Parco Naturale Regionale di Porto Venere must be one of the most beautiful natural areas we have visited. The mountain, the sea, the houses on the cliffs and on the coast, the cafes and the restaurants, and the hospitable locals, and the nice non-locals, make this a really great place to visit. This has to be experienced to be truly appreciated. We went there for one day and absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. Porto Venere is a remarkably stunning place.

I liked Portovenere better than the CinqueTerra towns! It was beautiful, with lovely views of the Med Sea, and little areas to walk and churches to see and lovely places to eat! Portovenere can be used as a jumping-off spot for seeing CT. From here, we rented a boat (and driver) and drove by all of CT, stopping at 3 of the towns. Still, lunch by the sea in Portovenere cannot be beat!

Guided boat tours around Cinque Terre. Snorkeling during the morning tour, sunset view during the afternoon tour.
We had a wonderful evening cruising the Cinque Terre shoreline. Seeing the towns from the water in the evening light was spectacular. Daniele was informative, and funny. We really enjoyed his humour, his stories and learning about the history about the area. Thank you Daniele for a great evening!!

The "Amedeo Lia" museum is located in the old convent of the minimites of St. Francis from Paola, who settled in the town of la Spezia in about 1620. The collection includes about 1200 works of all kinds, classical, late antique, mediaeval, up to the 18th century. There are paintings, miniatures, bronze, copper, ivory and wooden statues, glassware, tin-glazed pottery and art objects which document the taste and culture of Italian and European art.
We were staying across the way from the Lia so it was no effort to go there. It is a beautifully presented gallery and yes, prevous reviewers... its is dominated by religuous works. However, amongst the paintings are artefacts of glass and metal that date back to the 1200s and more and there is value is spending some time looking at such amazing historical pieces in air conditioned comfort.

I believe this church dates back to the 1200's. The walk up to the church is very interesting, with the Grotta Byron on the right as you approach the church. The inside of the church was simple, and the views from the top were incredible. We took the ferry to Porto Venere, and the view of the church from the water was impressive.

We discovered this Naval Museum, next to the military and naval dockyards in La Spezia, and were surprised to be charged only 1,55 € each to go in. It has a really good collection of exhibits, ranging from original manned torpedos from WW2, to large scale models of old sailing ships. There was an unusually comprehensive exhibition of naval artillery, and further exhibits, including a submarine, in the grounds outside.

Great design and pretty snazzy looking bridge (Ponte) and I have no history to impart. Links the foreshore to the man made Marina (Mirabella) and opens for small skiffs with large masts !! We lucked in on a raising, with alarms, bells & flashing lights and it blocked access for over 10 minutes but it was a pleasant interlude on an afternoon stroll !

You can catch 2 lifts to get to the castle or walk up several flights of steps. There are Roman exhibits including a few mosaics as well as some Egyptian exhibits. The displays are all in Italian. There are good city views from the top of the ramparts.

The street name comes from the place name "Prion" - large stone which climbed the auctioneer who sold the goods. The current street looked like otherwise before. There were the warehouses, the macaroni factory, come true product wholesale right here. The old via del Prione did not survive the bombing of 1943-44. Via del Prione now connects the station to the port. Now it is walking street, full of shops and restaurants. City theatre is here also. The main square is Piazza Garibaldi. Don't look for it on a monument to the great revolutionary - it stands next to the port. Instead, there`s a strange modern monument identified as chopped egg. Sculptor Viliano Tarabella had in mind quite another. It turns out to be sail. Somehow inflated in opposite directions. I understand that the winds, but such way?
