The Cinque Terre. Five small jewels between sea, rocks and mountains. Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare. Along the coast from Porto Venere, in the direction of Genoa, the five historic centers (World Heritage List - UNESCO since 1997) follow a landscape marked by steep paths, vineyards and dry stone walls on the sea.
The Gulf of Poets. The Gulf of La Spezia, also known as the Gulf of Poets, is famous in the world. This nickname derives from the fact that over the centuries many literate and artists have resided there: writer D.H. Lawrence, the poet Lord Byron, and writer P.B. Shelley with his wife Mary, author of the famous Frankestein novel.
Portovenere. Fortifications, castles, churches and the Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto islands make Portovenere one of the most fascinating villages in our area. The most representative monuments are the church of San Pietro on the cliffs overlooking the sea and the nineteenth century Fort Umberto I of Palmaria which hosts thematic exhibitions, conventions, shows and cultural events.
Lerici, San Terenzo and Tellaro. Lerici, San Terenzo and Tellaro three pearls in the far east of the Gulf of Poets. The villages of Lerici and San Terenzo are situated in a small natural bay, both of which are protected by two imposing medieval castles, and are linked by a stroll through multicolored houses, cliffs and large beaches. San Terenzo is home to Mary Shelley, a famous writer. In the easternmost part of the town, perched on a small cliff, stands Tellaro, a small seaside village considered to be one of the most beautiful in Italy.
La Spezia. Beginning in the second half of the nineteenth century, the city has experienced an extraordinary development when the great Navy Arsenal, wanted by the Savoy, largely changed its destiny and face. But already in the time of the Maritime Republics, Spezia was linked to the events of Genoa. The Genoese influence is still perceptible, it is captured by the carruggio that cuts in half the ancient center, the via del Prione, a few steps from our hotel. The city has monumental attractions of absolute value, such as the Castle of San Giorgio (1262), the Maritime Military Arsenal (1869), the Civic Theater (1849) and many Christian churches such as the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta In the first half of the 13th century it was also the political and civic center of La Spezia.
