What? Cinque Terre might be the best known sight of Liguria but Portovenere has its understated charm. At the heart of the town, with tranquil views of the harbour, is Grand Hotel Portovenere. It’s a literal stone throw from the pebbled paths of the old town, an easy journey by day. And at night, it’s the perfect place to look out onto the harbour lights.
When? Open year round
Where? Via Giuseppe Garibaldi, 5, 19025 Portovenere SP, Italy
