La Dolce Vita is the sweetness of doing nothing. A state of mind where you feel fully alert and yet fully relaxed. Portovenere does that to you. The strikingly handsome fishing village of Portovenere immediately draws your attention to its tall,narrow and intensely colorful Genovese style houses. This is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site worth exploring with a yacht charter in Portovenere. The unassailable Castello Doria dominates the Portovenere eye-line from its panoramic position above the village.
Across the Le Bocche channel are the three islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto. Boats can enter the sea caves at Palmaria, for a private tour charter a yacht in Portovenere. The most famous of these caves is the Grotta Azurra – The Blue Cave and then there is the Byron Cave, named after the poet. Lord Byron was a long time resident of Portovenere. The Island of Tino is strictly off limits except on festive days to pay homage at the shrine of St. Venerio. On Tinetto Island lie the ruins of an early catholic settlement.
There is certain exquisiteness to the ruggedness of Cinque Terre. Chiseled into tiny kinks in the mountainside is a framework of tall slim colorful houses with narrow vertical lanes. The houses of Riomaggiore glow ethereal, in the light of the evening sun. The grapevines around Manarola produce Cinque Terre’s most famous wines. Monterosso has the best beach of them all and Vernazza, the most picturesque harbor. Only the village of Corniglia has no sea access as it sits high atop all the other villages. But it is the only place where you can capture all 5 villages in one photo frame.
