Rather, were talking the town of Portovenere, a truly beautiful fishing-village-turned-elegant-summer-resort, on the other that is, on the southeastern side of the Gulf of La Spezia.
Portovenere is gorgeous, with its characteristic castle, Romanesque churches, little harbors and coves, and narrow, multicolored 3- and 4-story houses.
Portovenere makes a great base from which to visit not only the Cinque Terre, but also up and down the coast from Genoa, Portofino, and Santa Margherita to the north, to Lerici, Carrara and Pisa to the south.
