The Gulf of Poets – Portovenere

Venus was the goddess born out of the sea 🧜‍♀️. Nowhere better to build a temple 🏛 to Venus than here, where the waves of the sea crash against the rocks guarding the entrance to the ‘Gulf of Poets’?

Now the temple is gone, replaced by the beautiful church ⛪️ of San Pietro.

However, the town still bears the name of the goddess and is in fact called Porto Venere.

Its strategic position between the Gulf, the Cinque Terre, and the small archipelago that includes the islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto, makes it a precious gem🔹 of the Ligurian coast.

📍 Here too you can find equipped moorings, such as the marinas of Porto Venere, Le Grazie and Marina of Fezzano.

From here, you will be able to explore 🗺 the Ligurian coast and the archipelago with its various mooring areas.

Don’t forget that you are in the middle of a Natural Park🌿. So enjoy nature and be respectful of it!
