I made the mistake in booking 3nights in Portovenere which is unfortunately 2 nights too long. Unfortunately there is not much to do here and doesn't help when 2/3 days are rainy and your hostel is not friendly. This town is very slow and quiet,...More

The boat ride from Monterosso to Portovenere was beautiful. You get to see all the 5 towns along the way, enjoy the sun and the ocean views. As you enter the port of Portovenere, you will be amazed at the fort and church. Spend a...More

Most people going to Cinque Terre might miss Portovenere since it's not one of the 5 villages. But I have to say, Portovenere is actually more beautiful than the other 5. No hikes in between them, but a great place to say and visit.

Absolutely stunning place, suggest stay there overnight, (or two!), or at least get there before the day trippers arrive. We have photo's with nothing but ourselves and the scenery following a walk after breakfast - we missed the castle because it did not open until...More

Lots of little sailboat bays to poke around in, good restaurants with local cuisine, wonderful sunshine in May. Cruises to CInque Terre leave from here.

We began our stop here with low expectations, but the nice people and the town won us over. The town is small, but easily walkable with stunning water views. The restaurants all serve the expected local dishes and it's easily reachable by car or ferry.

Worth visiting is you have few days and want to spend them on the seaside combining with mountain hikes and nice boat trips. Local cuisine is nothing special indeed. Nice medieval style center or better to say one street.

This is a great place to stay while exploring the Cinque Terra. The town is picturesque and has several good restaurants. Easy access to Palmaria Island, for example.

There are basically only two pedestrian alleys. You walk up one and come back on the other. At the far end of town there is a church and some ruins. There is a nice view from there.

Hi Kitty, we were there in late March and unfortunately a week early before the "season" opened. We researched up and down the port of La Spezia and found that in season there are not only the ferries that take you up and... More

Debby Not as far as I know. You could hike to riomaggio but that would be a loooong way. Would say portovenere is a side trip, different from cinque terre.
