Welcome to Portovenere
A concentration of wonders unique in the world:
the tall narrow houses standing shoulder to shoulder, like a host of soldiers defending the land,
an ancient church built on a rock overlooking the sea,
the Byron cave where the poet spent long moments of meditation inspired by an unparalleled view,
the nearby islands of Tino and Tinetto, a paradise for freedivers and snorkelers where communicating caves,
walls full of moray eels, mussels, octopus, sea bream and cuttlefish populate these rocky bottoms that are alive with plants.
