Hello, everyone! I want to know who else besides me is also in love with Italy? What an incredible country, isn’t it? It has everything to please. Layers of history everywhere, wonderful wines, one of the most delicious cuisines in the world, friendly people and cute cities. Have you heard of Portovenere?
This nice village of narrow streets and colorful houses is located in Liguria, on the Italian Riviera and has one of the best lodging options for those who want to explore the Cinque Terre region: the Grand Hotel Portovenere.
The hotel occupies a historical building from the 16th century, which was a Franciscan convent until 1970. In 2014 it was completely renovated to become a hotel and to receive guests in its 47 accommodations. It is worth staying a few days at the Grand Hotel Portovenere to enjoy the medieval center, the port, visit the Doria Castle, the churches of St. Peter and St. Lawrence, in addition to the unmissable Cinque Terre, a group of five seaside villages full of personality: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare.
Portovenere along with Fezzano and Le Grazie make up the province of Le Spezia and are UNESCO World Heritage Sites as well as the neighboring Cinque Terre. It is certainly one of the most charming places in northern Italy.
Take the opportunity to combine the trip with other corners of the country such as bucolic Tuscany, for example, or perhaps with super fashion Milan.
This region is nice to visit from March to November.
XoXo and until next Tuesday.
