SEA – Tellaro, Lerici, la Serra and Cinque Terre


Tellaro, with its tower-houses and the steep narrow streets leading down to the sea is the last village you meet on the east of the La Spezia Gulf. It’s a magic place to visit especially,  if you have the opportunity, at sunset.

Lerici, nestled between green mountains, is a beautiful seaside village, the walk up to San Terenzo, another little gem, offers one of the most beautiful landscapes in Italy.

From here you can admire the untouched nature of Palmaria Island, and you cannot certainly miss a boat trip to the famous “Grotta Azzurra”. In front of the island there is Porto Venere, the charming village with the Church of the thirteenth century of St. Peter, the square overlooking the sea with the typical facade in black and white bands. From there you can enjoy a wonderful view towards Lerici, the Apuan Alps and the coast of 5 Terre.

From the west side of the Gulf, there is “Le Grazie”, a beautiful cove near Portovenere with the ruins of a Roman villa of the first century BC. The village has a long tradition in the field of shipbuilding and each year hosts the event “Valdettaro Classic Boats” meeting of historical boats.

The Cinque Terre, famous throughout the world for their unique beauty, are a must. Riomaggiore and the “Via dell’Amore” that leads to Manarola with its colorful houses overlooking the sea. The famous sweet wine “Sciacchetrà” that you can taste in a wine bar in Corniglia, the steps and alleyways of Vernazza up to Monterosso, where you will find sandy beaches and taste the famous anchovies accompanied by a glass of wine.
