Portovenere, Italian Riviera
Province: La Spezia
The Ligurian coast between Cinque Terre and Portovenere is a cultural landscape of great scenic and cultural value. The layout and disposition of the small towns and the shaping of the surrounding landscape, overcoming the disadvantages of a steep, uneven terrain, encapsulate the continuous history of human settlement in this region over the past millennium.
In front of Cape San Pietro there are Palmaria island and the islands of Tino and Tinetto, originally linked to the mainland
Portovenere was an important military base first under the Roman domination, then under the Bizantini.
