There are just a few houses and on one side there is the view of the Cinque Terre coast and on the other the Gulf of La Spezia – how could your morning hike view be better? 

Breathtaking views, uncontaminated nature and stunning wildlife will accompany you all the way to Portovenere village where you will be able to admire the rocky cliffs that dominate the village, on which the medieval church of San Pietro is perched!
